Fine Arts Department
The Fine Arts Department offers courses and cocurricular activities in dance, music, theater, visual arts, and interdisciplinary arts. Most offerings in the department are presented at the six track level, in line with the traditional humanistic/liberal arts base of the Jesuit college preparatory curriculum. The culmination courses in studio/performance sequences are offered at the honors level and require a demonstrated talent level, a distinct pattern of student growth, and auditions or the approval of the instructor for registration. A further exception is the AP Art History course, which is open to students in the Dumbach Scholars program, and whose registrations are made directly through the Director of that program. Fine Arts credits required for graduation: 1.0
Students may choose a Performing Art option in lieu of Physical Education during the freshman or sophomore year. Performing Arts include instrumental music, vocal music, theater, and integrated performing arts.
