dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to determine if a positive relationship exists between college readiness and a high school for the arts experience. This research focused on one arts high school in order to determine graduate perspectives on the overall importance of such an education and whether or not this style of learning was valuable preparation for college. This study used a mixed-method approach through the use of a quantitative survey with multiple rating items and qualitative open-ended questions and interviews. Influenced by the work of Daniel Pink, Elliot Eisner, Howard Gardner, and Eric Jensen concerning knowledge and skill transfer, and benefits of the arts, this study seeks to provide an understanding of graduates' ongoing perspectives on the value of an arts-rich education (Pink, 2005; Gardner, 2006; Jensen 2001). Of specific importance is how these experiences have influenced the formation of their well-being, education, and preparation for college. Is the arts high school experience a beneficial and realistic pathway to college preparedness? Ultimately, the study offers valuable suggestions moving forward as the individual school grows and data to guide in the development of other unique schools.en_US
