High School Programs
In High School, students are learning to become independent and empowered adults. SCT believes an arts integrated curriculum can support young people on this journey.
Spotlight: Creative Drama for Mental Wellness
9th - 12th | 60 Minutes per Session | Workshop & Residency
This program is designed to bring students and their teachers together in an immersive learning environment that is safe, active, and community focused. Guided by SCT Teaching Artists, participants engage in creative play to strengthen trust and collaboration, and then focus their energies inward using structured activities that encourage self-reflection. Research has shown that young people gain social-emotional skills when knowledge is embodied through practice. Creative Drama for Mental Wellness bridges theatre education with evidence-based strategies in SEL to help students develop self-awareness and make positive choices in addressing their mental health needs, even in situations that are unjust or outside of their control. These concepts are rehearsed using role play exercises within the safety of the classroom so that they develop confidence to advocate for themselves when faced with challenges in the real world.
