At Shattuck-St. Mary’s School, we believe in the endless benefits students can gain when they have access to robust visual and performing arts opportunities. And we’re committed to offering students the best opportunities to pursue artistic interests at any skill level and providing a safe and encouraging environment for students to be introduced to, explore, and challenge themselves artistically.

Students receive instruction in music, dance, photography, sculpting, painting, theatre, and video production that is second to none from the most highly qualified faculty in their fields. Whether a student is a beginner or looking to perfect their passion, Shattuck-St. Mary’s helps students gain knowledge, confidence, and self-expression in whatever medium they choose.

For the more serious vocalist and instrumentalist, Shattuck-St. Mary’s offers specialized Centers of Excellence Programs in Pre-Conservatory and Vocal Performance. These programs incorporate individualized training from world-class college professors such as Alex Braginsky, Sally O’Reilly, and Dr. Allyss Haecker as part of the student’s school day, along with performance opportunities at various concerts and local competitions.

While all of our students are required to take one arts elective each year, we find the majority of our students are eager to sing, act, dance, play an instrument, try the pottery wheel, learn to perfect their video skills, and more!
