Talent Unlimited High School

Overview written by the school: We are an inclusive ensemble, empowering diverse individuals to collaborate, explore, and take responsibility for authentic, bold choices in a student-centered learning environment. Every student completes two course sequences all four years: the Performing Arts sequence prepares students for a conservatory or BFA program; the Liberal Arts sequence simultaneously prepares students for a traditional college or university. The balance of the two supports all students to become life-long artists. Our learning community is located one block from our CUNY partner, Hunter College in the Upper East Side and is comprised of families from all five boroughs.
