Nine Archbishop Carroll High School Art students were selected as scholarship recipients to The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Frances M. Maguire Pre-College Program.

Selection to this competitive program was based on student portfolios and teacher recommendations.

The 24-week, two semester drawing and painting course for high school students focuses on building observational drawing and painting skills and is taught by PAFA faculty member Roger Chavez.  Completely funded by the Maguire Foundation, the scholarship includes instruction, and all materials.

Upon completion, Carroll students will also receive three college credits.

The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, founded in 1805, is the first and oldest art museum and art school in the United States. Nearly every major American artist has studied, taught or exhibited at PAFA.
