The application for the Norwalk High School Digital Media and Communications Academy (D.M.C.A) is now live on the Norwalk High School website through June 1. A partnership with CT Public Broadcasting Network, Norwalk Public Schools, and the City of Norwalk, this program provides students with hands-on technology experiences that will enable them to enter college or career with a mastery of industry standards.

 

Rising grade 9 students can apply via the online application, including those from across the district. Fifty students will be selected for the 2019-2020 school year, and enrolled as full time Norwalk High School students. These students will graduate with a Norwalk high School diploma as long as they remain in the program. Non 9th graders who are interested in the program should contact Kyle Seaburg at seaburgk@norwalkps.org.

 

Digital Media Academy students will produce content through multiple mediums, working

side-by-side with Norwalk High School teachers and professional partners who are experts in

their fields. Students in the D.M.C.A. will spend part of each day in a state-of-the-art Innovation Lab exploring how to tell their story. Academy members will have access to the Adobe Suite including Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Audition, Premiere Pro and Dreamweaver both in school and at home.

 

Those enrolled will also have the opportunity to explore earning college credit in Art & Design, Communication Arts: Film Media Studies, Digital Journalism, Film & Television Production Certification, and a Web Developer Certification.
