The study of the visual and performing arts is intertwined in the curriculum. From Kindergarten up, students study the arts in their pursuit to “learn the true, do the good, and love the beautiful.” Students are exposed to the masters and the great works and are immersed in the rich history of the arts in order to gain a deeper knowledge and appreciation for these disciplines. The aim of the core curriculum is for students to build a foundational understanding of the performing and visual arts.
The K-8 art curriculum is designed to provide students with a foundational understanding of the visual arts. Students learn the basics of art with a complete understanding of the elements of art and principles of design. The appreciation of art and how a piece is made come from integrated art history lessons for each grade level.
The K-8 music curriculum is designed to provide students with a foundational understanding of music. Students learn to read and write standard notation, perform through singing and playing instruments, and develop an appreciation for the great masterworks of the Western tradition
As students are exposed to the fine arts in the core curriculum, they will also be afforded opportunities to explore their unique skills and talents through optional electives and extra curricular fine arts programming. As the school grows, it aims to form and mentor student performance groups in choral and instrumental music, as well promote student participation in juried and exhibited visual arts.
