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 handbells, 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 a fall performance event, holiday vespers, a spring play or musical, a spring concert, our annual monologue contest, as well as other opportunities for students to display their talents.
Visiting artists throughout the year offer students the opportunity to interact with, observe, and learn from professionals in the field.
Our art program is fortunate to be centered in the spacious 20,000-square-foot McCulloch Center for the Arts. Named for long-time benefactors Sandy and Dotty McCulloch, this Center abounds with activity on a daily basis from Morning Meeting to afternoon practices and drawing classes. The MCA features:
