Interlochen Arts Academy
Creativity and Confidence Take Root
I have made so many friendships and built such special bonds that I am certain will last far beyond my graduation from Interlochen.
Eloise, Classical Performance
The really special thing about boarding at Interlochen is that you're surrounded by other artists. The more I immerse myself in other arts, the better I'm able to dance on stage.
I've had amazing teachers here. They bring a great environment to class every day—and I know I'll continue those relationships while I'm at college.
Interlochen has taught me that the opportunities are endless. As long as I work hard and strive to be the best person I can be, I am able to achieve anything.
Charlotte, Theatre Design & Production
At Interlochen, you are surrounded by a wealth of resources and people who are equally excited to be there as you are.
Sabine, Creative Writing
Since coming to Arts Academy, I've become more responsible. I've learned to balance my education with my art.
Ashley, Musical Theatre
The Visual Arts Department allows people to take an insane risk and gives them the materials and space to do that.
Dylan, Visual Arts
The decision to come to Interlochen was an easy one for me. I thought about where I wanted to be later in life—and I knew Interlochen would be the place to help get me there.
Ella, Film & New Media
Before I came to Arts Academy, I always pictured myself as a Theatre major—but when I learned about Interdisciplinary Arts, I thought that makes more sense for me.
Jenn, Interdisciplinary Arts
I am so passionate about what I do—and I knew that staying home wasn't going to be enough for me. So, I made the choice to come to Interlochen.
Rosie, Music Production & Engineering
Interlochen Arts Camp
Between the Magic of Art and the Beauty in Nature
Interlochen is an amazing environment. My favorite part is making music with my peers and connecting with my teachers. It's a life changing experience, and I'll never forget it.
Stanley, Orchestra & Wind Ensemble
I'm going to look back at Interlochen and think 'Wow, I was here.' So many incredible performers have been here and I'm so lucky to be a part of it.
Paige, Musical Theatre Production
Interlochen lets you escape what's going on at home and focus on the meaning of each song. The wind, the trees, and the practice huts—it's unreal how much you are surrounded by motivation and inspiration.
Life is about being bold and being yourself completely. It's scary to let yourself be vulnerable and uncomfortable, but I've embraced that here—and it's helping me grow.
Chloe, Repertory Theatre
You leave Interlochen a different person than when you arrived. You can use your new skills in a better way—to help and to change the world.
Kai, Visual Arts
Interlochen has given me more confidence in my ability to produce music. After being around such passionate people, Arts Camp really sparked my fire of wanting to create.
Ella, Music Production & Engineering
Having those experiences outside with your friends makes the writing come that much easier.
Tara, Creative Writing
Coming to Interlochen made me realize that there are so many people who love dance as much as I do.
Cosette, Classical Ballet
I feel grateful knowing that Arts Camp cares about cultivating my gifts. Interlochen just made me want to pursue filmmaking even more.
