Communication Arts at Norfolk Collegiate
Communication Arts is an interdisciplinary K-12 learning thread designed to help our students grow into creative, insightful communicators using a wide range of media, from traditional forms to emerging technologies. Distinguished by its emphasis on oral, written, visual and digital forms of communication, the Communication Arts curriculum prepares our students to thrive in an increasingly complex, global information environment. Incorporating design thinking, creativity, and media literacy, Communication Arts provides such experiential learning opportunities as production of student publications in each division and creation of video and multi-media projects that are shared with real audiences.
The program was made possible thanks to the Edward E. Ford Foundation, who donated $25,000, alumnus and noted film director, Gary Fleder ’81, who donated equipment and film-editing software to Norfolk Collegiate, and to the Beazley Foundation, which donated $125,000 for the Beazley Communication Arts Suite. The Beazley Foundation also contributed to our Lower School's iMac lab.
