Fine, Visual & Performing Arts
Creative involvement in the visual and performing arts gives balance to the broad pattern of learning. The College Board recognizes the unique contribution of the arts by identifying them as one of the six core areas of a school curriculum. One develops imagination and the disciplined use of emotion – important factors in learning to live well regardless of one’s life goals.
Our visual and performing arts curriculum challenges students to think creatively, encourages risk-taking, and enables students to apply their problem-solving skills beyond the classroom.
