Conservatory of Fine & Performing Arts
Global Connections on Bloomfield Township Cable with Jonathan Swift interviewing Mr. Jeffrey Michael Nahan
The fine and performing arts programs have nurtured and challenged countless generations of Detroit Country Day School students, many of whom now make their careers in the arts. The initiation of the Detroit Country Day School Conservatory program acknowledges the talent of our past students with an eye toward building excellence in the arts for future generations of graduates.
By clearly identifying the Conservatory as a course of study option within our college preparatory mission, we put into action a focused mentoring of student artists who are gifted in their discipline and seek the preparation for the very competitive admission process at the top schools specializing in their arts discipline.
Within Detroit Country Day School’s college preparatory curriculum, students in the Conservatory are able to customize a plan of study that ensures advancement in their artistic pursuits. Although the same basic graduation requirements of Detroit Country Day School apply to Conservatory students, major emphasis is placed on a student's artistic development for portfolio and audition readiness.
