How many students will participate?
Maximum 20 students per session as smaller groups are necessary to create opportunities for authentic learning.

All of our classes are designed so that everyone can participate—all levels welcome. Our seasoned instructors will always ensure each participant is challenged and placed accordingly. Faculty will modify all instruction as per needed.

We encourage students to have as much privacy and uninterrupted space as possible.
Will you monitor internet safety?
Each student will receive an individual ZOOM link to their classes. They will be held in a ‘waiting room’ so that their identities can be confirmed before being admitted to the virtual class. Once all students are present, the class will be locked so no one outside of our program will be able to enter. All class will be monitored by Soul Arts Academy staff.
Will there be scheduled breaks?
Will parents be able to view highlights from the week?
Yes. There will be a video compilation of student work and program highlights made available soon after session end!

We are dedicated to creating a climate of dignity and respect as well as recruiting a diverse group of faculty, guests, teaching artists, administrators and students.
