Broadcast Communications

Mission Statement
 
CHAMPS’ Charter High School Broadcast Communications empowers students by inspiring love for education through creativity, innovation, community service, and an artistic approach to life. Broadcast Communications students learn the responsibility that is associated with freedom of speech and they learn practical career oriented skills related to the many different facets of running a Radio station. Broadcast Communications encourages students to find and develop their authentic voice in order to effectively communicate to an expanding audience of listeners that they themselves cultivate. The Broadcast Communications experience goes beyond the walls of the classroom by bringing together students, families, teachers, staff, and members of the entertainment industry. These partners nurture each other in the proverbial passing of the torch that happens from generation to generation in all cultures and is at the essence of what we do in our learning community here at CHAMPS.
