The Montverde Academy Media Arts Program provides state-of-the-art facilities that engage students in a technology-rich environment with the latest software. In the field, HD cameras also allow students to capture and stream sports and events from around the Academy's campus.
With its weekly award-winning “MVA Today” news show, students thrive in a “real world” working broadcast news environment; complete with story development, scriptwriting, reporting, and regular deadlines. In filmmaking and radio broadcasting, storytelling and communication remain the cornerstone of sharing the human experience; while students get an introduction, overview, and understanding of the filmmaking and audio production process. Each of these classes requires imagination, creativity, and participation to succeed. Team building, problem-solving, and creative expression are always encouraged while constructive criticism and learning from classmates’ work is also emphasized.
The faculty of Montverde Academy’s Media Arts Department is comprised of former and current industry professionals that not only educate students but also inspire them. Throughout the school year, students get the opportunity to take field trips and participate in video-conferences with industry professionals and broadcast organizations. The Montverde Academy Media Arts Program gives its students the tools to excel in the creative media arts and the knowledge to communicate passionately.
