Every year, forty students from Design and Architecture Senior High (DASH) travel to New York to participate in a three-week summer pre-college program at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) and Parsons School of Design: The New School.
Annually, the graduating BFA class from New World School of the Arts (NWSA) travel abroad.
The purpose of these travel programs is to enrich the education of students through exposure to international culture, history, and museums.
Senior architecture, industrial design, and graphic design students from DASH participate every year in a design contest; and all students are awarded a monetary scholarship to help them transition in their first year of college.
Travel and scholarship programs are made possible by the de la Cruz Collection and John S. and James L. Knight Foundation with support and grant management from The Miami Foundation.
