Overview

The National High School Game Academy (NHSGA) allows dedicated high school students to experience the modern video game development process and, in doing so, learn skills used in those processes.

NHSGA encourages students interested in art, music, design, and programming to apply for this interdisciplinary program. Students are encouraged to expand their own creative possibilities in a unique blend of left- and right-brain college-level work.

Sharing methods and paradigms used in Carnegie Mellon's Masters of Entertainment Technology (M.E.T.) graduate program, the program includes an exciting blend of hands-on exercises combined with traditional lecture and discussion. Through classwork and team projects, NHSGA gives all students a taste of state-of-the-art video game development and provides instruction in the collaborative skills required for success in college and beyond. The curriculum is designed to elevate the students’ rigor and discipline and prepare them for the college experience.
