Academics and Housing for the Margaret Barbieri Conservatory

The Sarasota Ballet’s Margaret Barbieri Conservatory partners with the Elevation Preparatory Academy (EPA) of Sarasota, giving Conservatory students both the opportunity to continue their academics and provide accommodation in the EPA dormitories.

The mission of Elevation Preparatory Academy is always to put the student first. Elevation Preparatory Academy identifies and recognizes the potential of each and every student. We provide an environment in which students strive to achieve their highest academic goals and prepare them for college and lifetime learning through challenging our students academically, while teaching them to be responsible, compassionate members of our school and the global community. In conjunction with our partner academies EPA provides each student with the flexibility, knowledge, and tools to succeed in the 21st century.
