Visual and Performing Arts

From drawing and painting to acting and learning guitar, our Visual and Performing Arts Program has the right activity for you. Students can choose from a number of art and drama classes, and we have many extracurriculars that let you tap into your creative side.

If you are interested in singing, consider joining Unaccompanied Minors, our A cappella ensemble. If you want to learn an instrument, join JAMs to try your hand at guitar, drums, keyboard, or vocal performance. If you are a budding actor, you will have the chance to shine in our annual theatrical productions. Or, you can experience another side of theatre by joining the production crew. If you are interested in drawing and painting, our art classes will give you the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques to take your pieces to the next level.

Through the arts, our students learn to be imaginative and inquisitive. They learn to become critical thinkers, effective communicators, and problem solvers. And, they learn the importance of teamwork.

Get ready to grab your drumsticks, pick up your paintbrush, and learn your lines. Wherever your artistic spirit leads you, we encourage you to follow.
