Crescendo

Now enrolling for Fall 2021!

Have you ever dreamed of training with world class musicians while being simultaneously immersed in a stimulating academic and social environment? Imagine having the time to practice, study, and participate in school activities and co-curriculars without frantically working on homework in the car between commitments. Imagine living and learning with a diverse student body of musicians, artists, and creative thinkers from across the country and the world, all in the setting of Virginia’s stunning Shenandoah Valley.

Imagine yourself in Crescendo at Stuart Hall
