Turn your passion into an art career

McLane High School’s ArtVenture Pathway is a four-year program that provides motivated students with an engaging, arts-driven education. At each grade level, students are enrolled in art/theater, language, social science and science classes. Art and theatre-related themes are integrated across the curriculum, connecting projects to students’ lives and making learning fun.

Unique course offerings, job-shadowing, guest lecturers, internship programs, frequent counseling and academic support programs help prepare students for college or an entry–level career in the arts.

The ArtVenture experience puts students in a highly effective small learning community within a big school where student/teacher relationships provide additional support for success.
