The York County School of the Arts (SOA), founded at Bruton High School in 1986, provides high school students with a fine arts educational opportunity comparable to the math and science programs at the Governor’s School of Science and Technology. Enrichment activities include in-house professional performances, guest artists and lecturers, field trips that allow students to experience a wide variety of the arts, artists-in-residence, hands-on workshops, and interdisciplinary classes. SOA engages students in numerous and diverse art forms and encourages them to become lifelong learners and patrons of the arts.
