Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA) invites all Nassau and Suffolk County students with the artistic talent, passion and ambition to make the arts a career to an open house on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Prospective students from across Long Island are welcome to tour the campus at 239 Cold Spring Rd., in Syosset to experience classes focused on each area of the visual and performing arts.

During the Open House, parents of prospective students will also have the opportunity to speak with faculty, guidance, current parents and students, and to learn about the school’s summer arts camp, offered through a partnership with Hofstra University.

LIHSA students receive expert instruction from experienced professionals working in the industry. As part of their education, they regularly engage in unique learning opportunities through the school’s Master Class program. In the past, students have participated in workshops led by pop-rock icon Billy Joel, Young Audiences NY, and Sol Y Sombra. LIHSA is also proud to have partnerships with the American Ballet Theatre and the Roundabout Theatre Company, both conducting Master Classes throughout the year.

LIHSA graduates have gone on to develop successful careers in all arts fields. In addition to landing starring roles on Broadway, alumni have danced with national touring companies, illustrated for New Yorker magazine, designed successful swimsuit lines, and embarked on technical careers working for companies such as Cirque de Soleil and at landmarks such as Lincoln Center. Graduates have also earned prestigious scholarships and grants to continue their education at some of the nation’s most highly esteemed colleges and conservatories, including the Juilliard School, Boston Conservatory, Cooper Union and the American Academy of dramatic Arts.

“We are incredibly proud of the instruction and experiences offered at the Long Island High School for the Arts,” said Dr. Robert Dillon, District Superintendent of Nassau BOCES. “Each year, we look forward to our annual Open House to showcase the school’s programs, as well as the talent our students possess. We encourage all students interested in pursuing the arts to come down and take advantage of this opportunity to learn how LIHSA can help you reach your dreams.”
