The School of the Arts (abbreviated as "SOTA") is Singapore's first national pre-tertiary specialised arts school with a six-year integrated arts and academic curriculum, leading to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, for youths aged 13 –18 years old.
At SOTA, all students go through a six-year integrated arts and academic curriculum. Its holistic approach ensures each student acquires a valuable set of skills that span the academic, artistic and affective. The programme culminates in an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or an IB Career-related Programme (IBCP).
These are the art forms available at SOTA. Every student is required to specialize in an art form. The primary criteria for admission to SOTA are artistic talent and potential demonstrated during the Talent Academy.
