About the Lawson Academy

Founded in 1944, the Lawson Academy of the Arts at Converse College offers quality instruction in the arts with an excellent faculty, in a professional yet nurturing environment. We serve hundreds of families each year and encourage students of all ages to join us. The Lawson Academy also functions as a “lab school,” introducing Converse music students to the experience of teaching. This experience crosses over to the full arts spectrum during the summer when college students staff our Fine Arts Day Camp, where Converse students instruct young campers in visual arts, creative writing, music, dance, and theatre. The Lawson Academy affords the opportunity for Converse College and the Spartanburg community to share in a wonderful learning experience.
