The Fine Arts Center of Greenville, SC was established in August of 1974.  We provide advanced comprehensive arts instruction to students who are artistically talented and wish to take an intensive pre-professional program of study.  Students apply and are selected on the basis of talent, interest and commitment to their discipline and study architecturetheatredancevisual artsmusiccreative writing, or digital filmmaking

Students attend the Fine Arts Center five days each week in the morning or afternoon for 110 minutes of instruction and spend the remainder of their time at their home high school.

Each year approximately 400 students attend the Fine Arts Center. Our 2015-2016 graduating class of 102 students earned over 10 million dollars in scholarship opportunities.

Dr. Roy S Fluhrer 

Scholarship Fund


After thirty years of inspirational leadership, Dr. Roy Fluhrer has retired as the Director of the Greenville County Fine Arts Center. However, as Roy would always say in the schoolwide assemblies he used to rouse us to ever greater feats of artistry and community engagement, “It’s not the building that makes this place special. It’s the people inside the building.”

Dr. Fluhrer’s vision has always been tightly woven into the fabric of the school. He led the initiative to create the building that is now the FAC home, a work and performance space that celebrates every form of the arts from the moment a visitor or student walk through the front door to the furthest corners of the classrooms. It impressively reflects and facilitates the arts-based focus and economy of which Greenville is so justifiably proud.

It is with this legacy in mind that a group of inspired arts educators, parents, appreciators and practitioners have banded together to create a scholarship in Dr. Fluhrer’s name, to be awarded annually to a student who has demonstrated leadership and artistic fearlessness in their time at the FAC. In order to make this scholarship meaningful to the chosen student recipient, and to maintain it in perpetuity, we have set a target of raising $75,000 to act as a foundational source from which we can draw for the scholarship each year.

To do this, we need your help. The Fine Arts Center has touched many thousands of students over the years, whatever donation you can afford; you will be ‘paying it forward’ to the next generation of students. A $250 dollar or above donation will earn your name listed on a commemorative plaque to be displayed in the lobby.

Please consider helping us with this effort to honor Dr. Fluhrer and to further the career of the future generations of artists, arts administrators and arts educators. To see the attached letter with more detail regarding donor levels, etc., click here.
