The Academy of the Holy Cross Visual and Performing Arts programs create a safe and caring atmosphere where students can develop a love of art through authentic, hands-on experiences. The Academy provides all students with the opportunity to utilize the arts as a valuable learning tool in order to enrich their personal lives and contribute to their academic success. AHC recognizes that by studying visual and performing arts, students learn to develop initiative, discipline, perceptual abilities, and critical creative-thinking skills that extend to all areas of life.
Therefore, the Academy believes that a comprehensive arts education program must be an integral part of the core curriculum. Students have the opportunity to continually improve artistic skills, create and/or perform original works, acquire an appreciation of arts from many eras and cultures, develop an intellectual basis for making aesthetic judgments, and connect and apply what is learned in the arts to other areas of study.
Our co-curricular program is provides a variety of opportunities for students at all levels of talent to pursue their talents and explore new ways to showcase their abilities.
