Introduction to the Arts

At St. Joe's, each member of the Visual and Performing Arts Department - faculty, students, parents, and volunteers - is encouraged to explore and develop his/her talents in the arts to contribute to the department, the school, and our community. We offer extensive opportunities in visual, vocal, instrumental, and theater arts - and all are welcome to participate. 
 
The quality of the arts program at St. Joe's results in a majority of students studying the arts for more than the state requirement of one credit, with many achieving four full credits. Studies show that involvement in the arts enhances overall educational success, and we commit to providing a safe and respectful environment for our young men to tap into their creative talents. 
 
Art production, performance, and academic study of such reflects a spirit of integrity, professionalism, and stewardship - recognizing God as the ultimate artist working creatively through us.
