Goals & Philosophy

The Visual & Performing Arts Program at Jesuit High School seeks to develop and cultivate the creative imagination of each of our students, who then bear witness to the beauty and imagination of God alive in our world.

The Arts teach our students to be creative, collaborative, compassionate and confident – skills that will serve them in all lifelong endeavors.

The Arts provide a platform for dialogue when all other discourse fails, and serve as a vehicle for social change.

Finally, we believe the Arts are the gateway by which God is given a human form that has the power to concretely impact and transform the lives of our students. This encounter helps them discover the greatness within themselves, and ultimately, in all of humanity.
