Our Schools


Cullowhee Valley School encourages students to not only celebrate the arts and culture of our rich mountain heritage, but also embrace an appreciation for diverse cultures and historical movements. Through art projects which provide a community service, our students develop a sense of social responsibility.

Our art program empowers students with 21st century skills such as critical and creative thinking and also enriches the core subjects. Students are challenged to find personal and real world application to their learning as well as developing an appreciation of lifelong learning through the arts.
