Our Mission

The University High School School of Communication Arts (SCA) combines creativity and academics in student projects in areas such as art, graphics, computer applications, film, photography, journalism, web design, animation and television production. students take core academic classes to fulfill the "a - g" requirements as well as selecting from a wide variety of elective courses that emphasize the arts and writing through visual, print and digital communication.


In today’s high-tech world, the workplace demands that employees have higher levels of tech and computer skills, not just knowledge.  With SCA, students and teachers work collaboratively around supporting technology to assist students in attaining these skills, along with encouraging team-building, organizational skills, analytic and critical thinking skills that are so important in succeeding in college and in future jobs.
