At SCAD, Pre-college: Rising Star participants have access to university facilities, including classrooms, computer labs, studios, production suites, libraries, galleries, theaters, bookstores and fitness centers. Students live in a SCAD residence hall and have their meals at a SCAD dining facility. All courses are taught by SCAD professors; maximum class size is 20 students. A closing exhibition of student work is held at the end of the program.
