As a senior at Academy for Careers in Television & Film, all teachers are very responsive, responsible and aware of their students' goals, achievements, and grades. They encourage you to do your very best at all times. If you are interested in photography, acting, screen-writing, directing and editing this is the school for you! At this school you get the chance to build strong and close relationship with your teachers and advisor by having the chance to call them by their first name. There's always tutoring available and other extracurricular activities after school. Even though the sports teams aren't "amazing" you get to meet friendly and kind teammates that can potentially lead to long-lasting friendships. It's great!!

What I enjoyed about ACTvF is how open everyone is to express themselves. Since it is a film school, everyone got to show their creativity through different variations such as scriptwriting or directing. The teachers are close to their students and are also very helpful. The school also gives out internships to hardworking students which also leads to students getting professional film-related jobs right after graduating.
Academy for Careers in Television and Film was my first and only high school. Unlike my other friends at different high schools, I didn't have to transfer out somewhere else because it was just an amazing experience and a lot of people were friendly there. Even the teachers cared a lot about how you were doing in class and your performance in general. The school had a lot to offer if you were failing a class and always made sure you had the help you needed to pass. Advisors became like your 2nd parents since they were always in your business, but in the good way since they really cared about how you were doing. Overall it was like having your own little family at school and that's pretty rare to find at other schools.
