It's no accident that many of the world's top brands are also design leaders.

Students enrolled in Da Vinci Design are preparing for college and 21st century careers in architecture, product design, graphic design, and other jobs that call for skills in art, science and technology.

Da Vinci Design engages students in a rigorous and relevant college preparatory curriculum that uses hands-on, project-based learning to give lessons real-world context and meaning.

Students learn not only academic content but also the vital 21st century skills – including creativity, innovation, collaboration, problem-solving and communication – they need to become the next generation of artists, designers, thinkers and business leaders.

Da Vinci Design has partnerships with many local design leaders, including Art Center College of Design, Mattel, Belkin International, Gensler, Karten Design,and the XPrize Foundation, that offer project support, job shadowing opportunities, internships, and mentoring to help students master the real-world skills and knowledge that do not appear in the state and federal content standards.

Examples of recent projects include designing medical devices and headphones that spread messages of social change. The Da Vinci-Karten-X Prize collaboration was featured in Fast Company’s blog, “What Happens When High School Students Take a Stab at the Tricorder X Prize?”

Students enrolled in Da Vinci Design have many opportunities to explore design beyond their core classes. Seminar classes have included Illustration, Product Design, Architecture, Toy Design, Photography, Web Programming, Game Design, Murals, Fibers, Computer Modeling & Design, and many more.

Student progress is measured and assessed through traditional tests and quizzes, public presentations of learning, exhibitions, and digital portfolios.
