The Montverde Academy Media Arts Program offers young, creative minds the opportunity to explore film and video production, radio broadcasting, and broadcast journalism.
Through instruction, hands-on experience, field trips, and interaction with industry professionals and broadcast organizations, students gain skills and knowledge to communicate passionately and excel in the creative media arts arena.
Beginning in Middle School, students participate in Media Arts through broadcast and media arts electives taught by our faculty of former and current industry professionals. Upper School students take classes such as 3D Design, Animation, Special Effects, TV Studio, Independent Filmmaking, Sports Media, and Advanced Broadcasting. State-of-the-art facilities provide students with an engaging, technology-rich environment to gain experience in the field by capturing and streaming athletic games and a variety of events hosted on campus.
With its 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, storytelling and communication remain the cornerstone of sharing the human experience while students gain an understanding of the filmmaking and production process. Both areas have earned recognition by CNN, CSPAN, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, Palm Beach Student Showcase of Film, Bonita Springs International Film Festival, the Enzian Reel Short Teen Festival, and others.
