Performing Arts

The performing arts department offers students a wide array of opportunities in vocal and instrumental music, dance and theatre, in an atmosphere where talents are nurtured. Students are encouraged to take risks and accept new challenges, and classes offered at all levels allow the students to begin new artistic journeys. In high school they begin to specialize if they choose. We hope to send students into the world as lifelong learners who embrace the arts with comfort and passion.
