UNCSA is a community of people who encourage you to be braver than you are and take bigger risks, and to be more creative and emotionally open.

Gus Halper '14

NBC's "True Crime – 
The Menedez Murders"

The absolute greatest thing about UNCSA is the people. The incredible relationships I formed at school and the new friends I’ve made at work are what bring me joy and fuel my desire to be an actor.

Elizabeth Lail HS '10, '14

ABC's "Once Upon a Time" 
FreeForm's "Dead of Summer"

UNCSA culture is all about helping you figure out who you are as an artist. This is what works for me. This is what I need. This is how I want to approach my acting.
