Welcome Parents and Families!
About the Program
As a satellite of Belmont-Harrison Career Centers, the primary goal of the Entertainment Marketing program is to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to find success and employment in the journalism, media, and entertainment industries should they choose to follow that career path. Today more than ever, employers are less interested in the piece of paper from a university and more interested in whether you have creative vision skills and creative vision to do the work! Four high school classes are currently offered, and each focuses on a different facet of media arts:
- Video Production (9th – 12th)
- Audio Broadcast (9th – 12th)
- Video Broadcast (10th – 12th)
- honors-level course
- Musical Engineering (10th – 12th)
- honors-level course
- open to choir and band members or by permission from Mr. Weaver
Head to the Program Handbook for more information on each course!

How do you measure student success?
This program does not use a traditional letter-based grading system for assignments. Instead, we focus on goal-oriented learning, individual student achievement, and a system of feedback and revision for completed creative projects.
This allows us to focus strongly on incorporating that feedback into our work and showing clear evidence of learning. As the year progresses, students build individualized portfolios that present important concepts in their own voice, include proof they have met our learning goals, and use completed audio/video/music projects to show growth as a learner and creator.
This system gives students the freedom to be creative and take chances without removing the responsibility of completing work, participating in class, and working to master new skills. It also helps each student understand HOW to learn, which is much more important than any other skill this program teaches.
