College Planning provides Marwen students and their families, who often have limited access to information and support regarding the college application process, with information about schools, preparing an application, and financial aid resources. Through this program, students prepare for SAT/ACT testing, learn how to create portfolios, explore college options, and research scholarship and financial aid opportunities.
Career Development programs are designed to teach students essential job skills and provide on-the-job professional training, allowing students to explore career options in the arts. Résumé development, portfolio preparation, and interviewing techniques are a few of the essential skills developed through these programs.
Marwen provides comprehensive Portfolio Development for students interested in putting together a strong portfolio for high school and college admissions, merit consideration, and general portfolio submissions, and admission for Chi Arts High School. We teach and assist students in putting together a body of work, documenting, presenting, and organizing work, and how to write a strong artist statement for college admission. We also offer opportunities to have student portfolios reviewed at any time by Marwen’s counselors/staff, and by artist professionals and admission representatives at our annual Portfolio Day.
