Help us to win this challenge!!
The Mission of THESPIAN SCHOLARS OF AMERICA, INC. is to restore pride and honor to Theatre Arts and Music classes within our high schools, and other educational institutions across our nation, by honoring with scholarships, the students who maintain an excellent academic standard, while actively participating in these programs. Its purpose each year is to award students with a scholarship to be put towards continuing a college education.
In deference to organized school sports, theater and music arts in the schools are generally underfunded, when in fact, it should be hailed as important to a child’s developing self-confidence and overall personal success.
Articles have been written extolling the “skills” that are learned as a result of participating in theater and music in high school. It has been proven that students learn essential tools to prepare them for success in both further education and their careers.
To that end, it is the mission of Thespian Scholars of America to spread that message and support all efforts to encourage full participation in these types of programs.
This year we will also be supproting the "Buddy Olympics", a project at Colts Neck High School where theater students spend the day with special needs students in extracurricular activities.
