About New World School of the Arts
The distinguished history of the New World School of the Arts began in 1984 when the Florida State Legislature established the institution to provide artistically talented high school and college students the means to achieve both an academic education and artistic training. In September, 1986, NWSA opened its doors to students in grades ten through twelve. New World School of the Arts is a center for excellence in the visual and performing arts. Through an educational partnership with Miami Dade County Public Schools, Miami Dade College and the University of Florida, NWSA provides a comprehensive educational program of artistic training, academic and creative development, and preparation for professional careers in the arts. Its audition-based programs are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art, Dance, Music and Theater.
