“It’s impossible not to make friends at Usdan.” – Current Student


Ever wonder what it is like to attend Usdan?

Enroll your young artist in TryU, a one-week program from August 5–9, 2024 for prospective students of all levels who have just finished grades 4 through 6. For five full days, new students will get to experience what makes Usdan so special — its accessible, acclaimed arts programs taught by accomplished educators and professional artists; the magical 140-wooded acre campus; and an environment where everyone can truly be themselves.

Each day, students will take three periods of arts instruction and swimming. Classes could include Vocal Music, Painting, Theater Games, and Creative Writing. Plus, every day includes a live performance in Usdan’s McKinley Amphitheater and a delicious end-of-day ice cream treat!

Be warned: It is highly likely that by the end of the week, your young artist will come home begging you to send them back to Usdan next year. So, to sweeten the deal, we will deduct the TryU tuition fee from your 2025 tuition. Class size is limited so enroll today to secure your spot!   

Tuition: $695
