Carver Center one of only 17 schools in nation to earn Arts Schools Network Exemplary School Designation

Towson, MD - George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology is one of only 17 schools in the nation to receive an Exemplary School designation from the Arts Schools Network. The five-year designation is awarded for 2018-2023.

Carver Center has been an ASN Exemplary Art School continuously since 2014.

“This is tremendous recognition of what takes place at Carver Center every day - for and with our students,” said Principal Karen E. H. Steele. “Our mission and vision involves providing opportunities for our students to actualize their dreams so that after graduation they are courageous citizens who are able change the world. This recognition from Arts Schools Network celebrates the energy, effort, creativity, and commitment of an entire community - faculty, staff, families, partners - to support our students in creating that reality.”

Founded in 1993, Carver Center is a countywide magnet school that supports and engages students in acting, business, carpentry, cosmetology, culinary arts, dance, design and production, literary arts, music, or visual arts - as well as a rigorous college-preparatory academic curriculum.

Melissa Brookes, ASN managing director, said, “We offer guidance, inspiration and incentives to arts school leaders who strive for excellence in their schools. When they demonstrate outstanding efforts toward this goal, as they do by following A Guide to Assessing Your Arts School, we recognize and reward their achievements with this designation.”

Carver Center and the other Exemplary Schools will be honored at the ASN 2018 Annual Conference, Oct. 23-26, in Orange County, California.
