With the freedom to find my individuality in an environment that helped foster creativity on many levels, I was given the tools to find my voice and the freedom to follow my passion at Stuart. My journey as a recording artist and Broadway performer began at a young age and without the support of the faculty and staff, I would not have been able to fully dive into my craft authentically. Some of my most transformative memories happened on stage and in the arts programs at Stuart. I’m incredibly grateful. - Ashley Loren, Broadway actress
