College Guidance & Advising
College, Conservatory and Beyond
Turn your creative aspiration into reality at LIHSA where preparation for conservatory and university programs is woven into the curriculum. Each LIHSA student works with a counselor who helps him or her establish college goals; develop a distinctive resume and portfolio, and rehearse for interviews and presentations.
Annually, prestigious national and international colleges come to recruit LIHSA students at our college fair where students connect face-to-face with representatives of premier institutions of higher education.
With more than 98% of our students going on to colleges and conservatories and earning millions of dollars in scholarships each year, college and post-secondary planning and preparation is a top priority. Our students have gone on to study at such institutions as Berklee College of Music, The Juilliard School, Yale University, Syracuse University, Parsons School of Design, Cooper Union, and New York University/Tisch School of the Arts.
