Signature Academic Program

Digital Mass Media

As we prepare students for today’s interconnected, data-driven global economy, effective communication skills are ever more important.

Gulliver Prep’s Digital Mass Media Signature Academic Program offered at the Middle and Upper School levels, provides application of real-world skills in the areas of broadcasting, video, print, and online media platforms. Our award-winning program puts students in the driver’s seat of content creation. From informative news stories to entertaining features, students learn how to produce several genres of content ready for publishing to multiple platforms – including online and social media – that drive audience engagement. Once students demonstrate understanding of fundamental concepts, they move on to join the advanced production student teams that produce our student-led publications and broadcast shows, and participate in competitions around the country. All of these experiences allow students to exercise skills in leadership, team collaboration, communication, time management, and creative thought, while working in a deadline-driven environment.
