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 the skills and creative vision to do the work! Five high school course are offered, and each focuses on a different area of the media arts industry:
- Video Production (9th – 12th)
- Audio Broadcast (9th – 12th)
- Digital Cinema (10th-12th)
- Advanced Videography course

- Honors-level course
- Open to choir and band members or by permission from Mr. Weaver

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 our creative projects. As each year progresses, students complete and revise creative projects both independently and in student production groups. A student’s grade in a course is determined by their ability to meet project deadlines as well as weekly reflection and self-assessment of their work.
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.
