Guidance and Passion

At St. Andrew’s School, we believe that the Arts are an essential part of the curriculum, as well as the foundation for a well-formed life. Whether in Middle School or Upper School, students are exposed to and participate in a variety of artistic expression, including visual art, music, dance, and the dramatic arts. As a small school, opportunities abound for students to express themselves in the art program. Often, students find talents they did not know they had or they develop interests in areas that are new to them. This may involve singing in the chorus, playing hand bells, painting a landscape, or acting in a play. No matter the medium, students are encouraged to work in the Arts and to stretch themselves in a supportive environment. Our experienced faculty members are excited when students discover a passion or develop skills that take their talent to the next level.

Our exceptional art programs include holiday vespers, the fall musical, the spring concert, the winter play, the monologue contest, as well as other opportunities for students to display their talents.
