In the Lower School, students immerse themselves in art, music, and drama each and every day, planting seeds of artistic appreciation that continue growing through their schooling. Students explore topics from their science or social studies lessons further in their art classes, through painting, sculpture, collage, and other multi-media forms.
From sculpting and theatre to choir and percussion, Middle School provides a wide array of opportunities for students to fine-tune their artistic skills and flex new creative muscles. The year is full of events that let our artists shine both on and off-campus, including at regional and state-wide competitions where our students consistently rank at the top. The sustained success of our students is a true testimony to the dedication and expertise of our Fine Arts faculty across all divisions.
At the Upper School, our fine arts program is supported by a state-of-the-art, 64,000 square foot fine arts complex, the Dell Fine Arts Center. St. Andrew’s offers 21 different fine arts courses taught by faculty with decades of experience combined. Our theatre sets have won statewide awards, our Select Choir is regularly invited to sing at the National Cathedral and Carnegie Hall, and our studio artists have been featured in galleries around the nation.
St. Andrew’s graduates go on to study with accomplished professionals, receive art scholarships, pursue careers in visual art, Broadway, television, and film, and perform and exhibit their work professionally.
