ELITE Talent + ELITE Education = More TIME

Since 2010, The Dallas Conservatory’s students have enjoyed world-class performing arts training in world-class facilities.

Now, TDC students enjoy our flexible, private academic education that allows more time for training, creative projects, professional assignments and travel.

In partnership with iUniversity Prep, a state-accredited online school operated by Grapevine-Colleyville ISD, TDC’s academic program exceeds national standards of excellence. We leverage iUniversity’s proven curriculum and technology while providing full-time, credentialed teachers onsite, and on-call tutors to our students

The result is a flexible academic model for students to compete at an elite level both artistically and academically. iUniversity graduates have been accepted into America’s foremost colleges including Harvard, Yale and Juilliard.

In 2017-18 TDC Academics Program will meet Monday through Thursday:  Academics 10:00 am – 2:00 pm and Performing Arts Training 2:15 pm to 4:15 pm. Private lessons are available during the day.
