We believe a profound understanding of the arts is essential to a complete education. In our program, we gain this understanding from hands-on involvement in the creative process. We provide students the opportunity to experience as many artistic disciplines as possible as well as pursuing in-depth inquiry in one or more arts disciplines.

The arts curriculum encourages students to commit, observe, play, envision, create, collaborate and reflect on the myriad ways they interpret and understand the world we live in and their place within it. We explore how the arts link us to our past and present as well as how the arts are a powerful means for communication and personal expression.
