The four-year entertainment-focused college, based at LA Center Studios in downtown Los Angeles, made the announcement Monday. The school said that the name change is intended to more accurately reflect the breadth and depth of programs offered by the school.
Relativity School welcomed its inaugural class in October, 2014, with its parent company touting the school at the time as its educational arm and the first-ever accredited BFA program affiliated with a studio. Relativity was interested in creating a learning environment for the next generation of content entrepreneurs and entertainment professionals and joined with director Glenn Kalison, Hussian College, and other sponsors to create a school dedicated to this mission.
The school announced Monday that it will graduate its inaugural class in the spring of 2018. It noted that many of these students are already working within the entertainment industry with several working as commercial dancers; one is a Radio Disney host; several students recently landed parts in a major national commercial; and two were semi-finalists in a national film and commercial production competition.
“We believe having a name better aligned to our programs and mission will provide our students with greater opportunities within the industry,” said Kalison. “We continue our commitment to provide our students with a competitive edge as we pursue opportunities to expand our offerings in the LA area and beyond — the future is bright, here at Studio School.”
