SML Good Neighbor Middle School Academy
S.E.A. Student Enrichments in the Arts
This is an after-school program in partnership with the Roanoke Children’s Theatre. After-school programs are provided in five elementary schools in Franklin County—Dudley, Burnt Chimney, Sontag, Windy Gap and Rocky Mount Elementary Schools. About 25 students in each school participate. Smaller after-school programs are provided at Huddleston and Moneta Elementary Schools in Bedford County. These programs are not part of the theatre program.
Good Neighbors began the S.E.A. (Student Enrichment in the Arts) programs in January of 2014 beginning with an eight week theater session in partnership with the Roanoke Children's Theatre.
