Middle School Students

Arts (Visual, Performing, and Communications)

Creative and artistic opportunities are the main attractions in the Art programs. All students enrolled in these schools are dedicated to the study of the arts. Intensive study and time is devoted to each student’s chosen arts major, while exploring other artistic disciplines in the classroom, in the studio and on stage. The program challenges students to achieve a high standard of artistic professionalism and academic excellence. Students are exposed to professional artists, field trips and artistic performances as part of the program.
