Saint Andrew's believes that the arts are essential for a well-rounded education.
The performing arts not only provide opportunities for students to develop creative passions, but also teach communication, language, and leadership in unique ways that inspire individualism. At Saint Andrew's, opportunities to participate in the performing arts are incorporated into the regular class schedule, as well as a wide variety of after school programs.
Saint Andrew’s has developed an award-winning Choral Program that is educationally rewarding, fundamentally sound, and musically exciting. Third through eighth grade students are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the choir programs as they learn about and experience the fundamental and advanced skills and craft of choral singing.
The Instrumental Music Program is available to students in Grades fifth through eighth who have an interest in furthering their ability at playing an instrument of their choice as they broaden their understanding of music as a whole and focus their energies into becoming proficient musicians.
