Celebrating National Camera Day!

Detroit Public Schools Community District houses some of the finest specialty schools in the state, especially supporting the District’s Career Pathways program. Originally named The Detroit High School for the Fine and Performing Arts, The Detroit School of Arts (DSA) is a nationally-renowned Arts and Academic high school that offers a strong college preparatory Academic and Arts Curriculum, with pre-professional study in Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Music Technology, Dance, Theater, Speech, Radio/Television production, Visual Arts and Visual Communications.

Founded in 1992 by Dr. Denise Davis-Cotton, the DSA offers a pre-professional study in Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Music Technology, Dance, Theater, Speech, Radio/Television production, Visual Arts and Visual Communications. Entrance into DSA is based on an audition and students are required to declare a major of study of either Dance, Theatre, Instrumental Music, Visual Arts or Multimedia Productions. 

Devin, a DSA alum and now a Theater Tech Specialist at the school shares a little bit about his experience… “As an incoming freshman attending the Detroit School of Arts I had no idea what to expect. I have always been involved in the arts in some way prior to high school, however DSA was not promoted in a way where it would have crossed my radar, but I’m so glad it did. The Multimedia Productions program consisted of: video editing, script writing, visual effects, filming, film study, readers theatre, and speech – things I had no experience in prior to enrolling. Luckily, through asking questions and having classes with upperclassmen I was able to acquire a skill set that would lead me into my next phase of life. I became very involved and once I graduated, it was a great honor to be extended a position at the school.

The DPS Foundation supports fine arts programs at DSA and invites supporters to ensure that our students continue to have rich experiences that prepare them for college and career.
