After a recent visit to W.E.B.

E. B. Dubois Academic High School Community, and it is a testament to the terrific work being done by you, your passionate teachers, and staff members.”

Our program benefits over-aged, under-credited students in many ways

  1. Students have the opportunity to accelerate credit accumulation through our online and blended courses.
  2. Students are given the right amount and right kind of support needed to succeed.
  3. Students form strong relationships with adults who provide valuable guidance.
  4. Students are encouraged to make their own decisions about the path their education will take.
  5. Students graduate prepared for success in college and/or career.
  6. Students are given a voice through participation in service learning and student council.

Students who are interested in pursuing a career in music production, video production, radio, or television are strongly encouraged to apply to W.E.B. Du Bois High school.

Our state-of-the-art music and television production studios are the perfect places to gain hands-on experience in these fields.
