The Center is housed in a renovated schoolhouse in the tiny village of Stecoah, North Carolina in the scenic Western North Carolina mountains.
Stecoah is about a half-hour west of Bryson City via US-74 West and NC-28 North – roughly midway between Bryson City and Fontana Dam.
We're also about 15 minutes north of Robbinsville via NC-143 and NC-28 South.
Funded by 21st Century Community Learning Center, the program offers Afterschool, Stecoah Theater Arts for Rising Stars (STARS) and Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM). More information.
