The Arts

Overview

Welcome to the Arts!

It’s about artistic expression.  There is an arts concert, event, play or art exhibition every month during the school year.

Our performance students consistently receive special and statewide recognition at regional theatre and music festivals, visual artists take high honors at county and state competitions and St. Francis dancers perform in concert, special events, competitions and liturgies.

An integral part of the school curriculum and community, our art students develop their interests with beginning through advanced classes in music, theatre, dance and visual arts.
