Arts Education

We know that an arts curriculum is not just a complement to a rigorous education; it is integral.

Music provides a new lens for fractions and patterns; visual art encourages self-reflection and exploration of issues at the heart of community; theater helps us to uncover deeper truths by facing our challenges and trials, coming through to something richer and more meaningful.

Our Upper School arts curriculum encourages critical, independent, and creative thinking. It also encourages these high school students to build confidence through challenging themselves.
