The Cinema School (TCS) is a selective academic high school offering a rigorous liberal arts curriculum that is grounded in filmmaking. We prepare our students for the best colleges by challenging them to achieve new levels of understanding and to accomplish great things.
Our well-rounded academic program lays a strong foundation for success in any field while simultaneously empowering the voices, creative visions and aspirations of our students.
The founding partner of the Cinema School is the award-winning Ghetto Film School (GFS), a non-profit organization which has respect in the film industry as well as in the school system for its high quality film programs for young people. GFS provides support for all film education and production training, industry internships, guest filmmaker lecture series, and professional development.
