The Long Center’s Education program sets a national standard of innovation and excellence by creating and fostering programs that have a profound impact on our youth, our schools and our community.

Investing in the potential of our youth is at the core of the Long Center’s Education Programs. We are fiercely devoted to helping each young person unlock and realize their full potential. Through our coordinated programs, thousands of students each year will develop the crucial building blocks that lead to success… because success is achievable; achievement is celebrated; and setbacks are learning opportunities.

We have seen that engaging in the arts, teaches a young person the importance of:

  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
  • Work ethic
  • Discipline
  • Trust
  • Striving for excellence
  • Self-confidence
  • Accountability
  • Play
  • Resilience

At the heart of any successful individual is a drive that is fueled by passion. Whether it is starring on Broadway, performing in regional theatre, leading a boardroom or raising a family, the passion our education programs ignite and the skills we nurture through our programs will remain with our youth for a lifetime.
