High School Parents

UNCSA provides a safe and stimulating environment where classmates share in a full, active high school experience — from AP courses and field trips to yearbooks and Prom. We also offer the full benefits of a university, including a Wellness Center with preventative and injury care, counseling services, a Fitness Center, plus a campus police and public safety department.

The support of parents and family members is also an integral part of the high school student experience. The Parent Support Organization (PSO) provides avenues for parents who want to stay engaged and be involved.

Tuition & Fees

Tuition is provided free of charge for in-state high school students, and a majority of additional billed costs are covered by the North Carolina High School Artists Grant. There is a tuition charge for out-of-state high school students.

The Tuition Grant Program provides free college tuition for in-state students graduating from the High School Program. Those graduates who are accepted into and enroll in college full time at a constituent UNC System institution can attend college at UNCSA or any other UNC System institution tuition-free.

Performances

One of the best ways to support your high school student is by attending one of the many performances, showcases and exhibitions during the school year. These events occur on campus, at the Stevens Center and in the Winston-Salem community. Some events are also available via livestream, free of charge.

Parent Support Organization (PSO)

Outside of UNCSA's Gray Building
Founded in 2009, the UNCSA Parent Support Organization (PSO) provides opportunities for parents to stay engaged in and support the mission of the high school program. A private Facebook group allows parents of current students a space to connect and ask questions, in addition to in-person and virtual events throughout the year. The PSO's largest annual fundraiser, the Nutcracker Boutique, is held each December.
