 Knowledge of and participation in the arts is fundamental to the development of children.  This class promotes an understanding of music, drama, and debate. Beginning with our youngest learners and progressing through middle school, the class will help students discover the joy of experiencing the arts and provide them with opportunities to foster thinking skills, creativity, and communication skills. 

In addition to this class, students in grades K-5 participate in a liturgical music class. Middle school students also have the option to participate in a drama exploratory class.  Extracurricular activities in the performing arts are also offered including band, choir, and drama.
