The Archbishop Carroll High School Jim Vance Media Program is a comprehensive four year plan for students to experience the journalism profession from the principles, practices and techniques, to hands-on-experiences in the field. Participation in this program prepares students for the diverse media world of today and the future, through core coursework, practical implementation through out-of-class activities and practicum/internship experiences. Utilizing a comprehensive approach from the fields of reporting and writing journalism, digital production (television and radio) scriptwriting and photo journalism, students will have the opportunity to have a diverse and multi-disciplinary approach to multimodal platforms on which to communicate. The program addresses a rigorous curriculum, which caters to industry trends and standards of convergence and the community needs, while reflecting the expectations of Archbishop Carroll’s College Preparatory Education. 

In honor of Jim Vance, an American journalist, the art of storytelling, understanding, utilizing and implementing multimedia approaches, will be the primary focus of the program. His archived contributions to the fields of print, radio and television will provide countless opportunities through the curriculum and hands-on experience, in-house and in the field, to experience journalism as a profession.
