The SoFA Design Institute Senior High School provides an exciting venue for aspiring young artists, designers and entrepreneurs. Our accredited 2-year Arts & Design program offers tomorrow's creative leaders an early start on their individual journeys of self-discovery. Our learner-centered program is led by experienced faculty who are respected professionals in their respective fields. Our teachers are experienced in challenging students to evolve and strengthen their unique identities.
Much of this work is performed through the integration of two areas of concentration: general education and design studies. These disciplines are further fused within our Integrated Lab - where academic, social and scientific values are blended into a singular basis for meaningful creative action.
WHAT IS UNIQUE TO SoFA SHS?
Aside from our experienced faculty, who nurture our students through one on one, personalized education and consultation, the SoFA SHS Program emphasizes meaningful creative work that can be applied to their own and their community’s needs. This is achieved via the integration of general education subjects with arts and design, through extensive curriculum development, planning and collaboration between teachers.
Lessons are taught through the SoFA Method —a systematic educational process which encourages participants to build beautiful yet practical solutions to issues ranging from the personal to the global.
With the SoFA Method, our program is delivered in a pioneering modular format, unique to SoFA SHS. To increase student engagement and concentration, term subjects are delivered in two separate modules. With only 5 - 6 subject areas to concentrate on for each module, instead of the usual 10 - 12 subjects in the traditional curricular format, SoFA students are able to gain more in-depth knowledge and insight through this distilled quick-fire format. With fewer subjects to focus on at any one time, students are able to perform to the best of their ability, while affording our faculty the capability to hone their skills further at a more personalized level.
With each class section kept to only a maximum of 15 students, we ensure the highest level of quality in lesson delivery and assessment.
For S.Y. 2021-2022, this program will be delivered through the SoFA C.R.E.A.T.E. (Collaborative Remote Experience through Art and Transformative Education) Program.
