Middle School

Arts

St. Andrew’s Middle School Fine Arts Program is enormously popular and inclusive, with many opportunities for students to explore, learn, and grow.

Sculpting, sketching, and collage art projects refine fundamental skills and expose students to new creative media. Band, Orchestra, and Percussion ensembles teach students to harmonize and maintain synchronicity, while our Choir and Theatre classes build vocal strength and dramatic interpretation.

School events throughout the year bring our artists together to showcase their talents, while regional and state-wide competitions let our students shine on a larger scale. St. Andrew's students consistently make top-ranking at these events, a true testimony to the dedication and expertise of our Fine Arts faculty.

Additionally, our Middle School students put on dramatic plays and full-scale musicals each year, taking advantage of the world-class Dell Fine Arts Center at the Upper School campus.
