Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Program

The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Program gives our students a love and appreciation of the arts through music, drama and dance. Our highly trained teachers work with our students to develop knowledge, skills and understanding in all genres of music, drama and dance. We benefit from Juilliard visiting artists and other beyond the classroom experiences like our Summer Arts program in Switzerland. Learn more about the collaboration.


MIT STEAM Collaboration

Our MIT-STEAM collaboration (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) takes our students to the labs at MIT annually and links our classrooms in Lincoln Park to students in our other schools across the world though our challenges designed by the experts at MIT.. Our Lincoln Park students research, design, invent, and create on common topics, as will their peers in places like Shanghai, Dubai and Switzerland – eventually all sharing their ideas and creations with each other. Our focus on STEAM education gives our students transferrable skills that will help them invent the future and be prepared for jobs that have yet to be created. Watch out STEAM DIY Series and see our MIT STEAM curriculum in action
