The Arts at St. George’s

The arts at St. George’s are an integral part of our academic program and community life outside the classroom.


Courses that range from visual arts to music and theater teach our students the importance of self-expression, creativity and open communication through varying mediums. Events like open-mic nights, music guilds and Hunter Gallery openings allow students to experience art on their own terms in welcoming, supportive environments.

The Arts in Class

All St. George’s students are required to take three trimesters in the arts, choosing from courses in the visual arts, music and theater. Talented visual artists and musicians also may choose from a range of A.P. courses, including Advanced Placement Music Theory and Advanced Placement Studio art in drawing, two-dimensional design and three-dimensional design.

Arts Beyond the Classroom

For students interested in expressing themselves creatively in venues outside the classroom, options include joining the SG Dance Team as an afternoon activity, singing in the Chapel Choir and playing in the SG Orchestra or Jazz Ensemble. A high level of performance is expected of all performing music ensembles and sustained participation in certain groups, or private lessons, can help satisfy a graduation requirement in the arts.
