Arts at SJP
An education in the Arts is fundamental to the formation of the whole person. Our goal is to give all students more than just exposure to the arts; we want to give them experience in the arts.
Students at Saint Joseph Prep are engaged in formal, required study of the Visual and Performing Arts for two semesters, one in 9th grade and one in 10th grade. Students have the option of continuing their study of the Arts in the 11th and 12th grades with more intensive courses, and depending on enrollment and resources, leading up to AP Studio Art and AP Music Theory.
After school, however, all students can participate in the Arts. There is Open Studio, Art Club, Graphic Design, Rock Band, and Drama & Theater. Here, students can create works of art, learn pieces of music, as well as contribute to our website or star on our stage. The School produces two major shows each year, at least one of which is a musical, and where artists, musicians, and actors all come together.
Each Spring, the school hosts a culminating event to celebrate the fine arts nurtured at Saint Joseph Prep in its annual Arts Night.
As the School expands, even more opportunities in the Arts will become available. Currently, we are considering adding Computer Graphics & Animation, as well as Drama Workshop and Jazz Band.
