Each student experiences a diversified and professional arts program delivered in a way that is uniquely Nueva. We want our gifted learners to:

  • Follow their creativity and passions, seeing themselves as capable artists

  • Develop a lifelong passion to use the arts as a language of expression no matter what discipline they are working in

  • Maintain the undiluted desire to explore and create that our very youngest students bring to Nueva
  • Experience and interpret the vast world of historical and contemporary art that they will encounter in their lives from the informed position of participant as well as observer

We invite you to explore the ways in which the arts are intrinsically woven into the student experience.
