In honor of Jim Vance, an American journalist, the art of storytelling, understanding, utilizing and implementing multi-media 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.
Students participating in the four (4) year program are identified as “Vance Scholars,” and will implement the journalist code of ethics, which are in alignment with the caliber of character, which is included in the mission and purpose of Archbishop Carroll High School. Students enter the program in their freshman year and graduate with their diploma and media program certification for their internships and specializations.
The school provides an investment (scholarship) in the academic growth and development of all Vance Scholars.
