PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- A group of Peekskill High School’s performing arts students visited Long Island’s Five Towns College on Thursday.
During their visit, the students watched part of a theater production, took a tour of the building, visited dorms, sat in on classes and even got to meet and greet professors.
They returned from the trip excited, motivated and with a true picture in their minds of what it is like to be a performing arts student at the college level, according to the Peekskill City School District.
The school district has formed a partnership with Five Towns College, which allows students to transfer performing arts credits earned in high school into credit for college courses.
“We look forward to visiting Five Towns College in the future, and seeing our own students begin their higher education in the arts,” said Crystal Hernandez, PCSD performing arts department leader.
