At Interlochen, we empower the next generation of creative changemakers through our unique, wholistic curriculum. The Interlochen 5 are the defining and reinforcing characteristics of an Academy education. Across artistic, academic, and residential learning, students cultivate core capacities, which become foundational to their mindset, motivation, and method: mindfulness, wellness, and resilience; creative capacity; interdisciplinary perspective and collaboration; global and cultural perspective; and community and citizen artistry.
