St. Mary’s Fine and Performing Arts
Program: A Stand Out for Success
While other schools are moving away from providing art and enrichment
programs for their students, at The Schools of Saint Mary we are enhancing
our existing Fine and Performing Arts Programs at both the middle school
and high school levels. With a rich tradition in music, theatre and fine arts,
St. Mary’s offers dynamic programs in orchestra, general music, chorus,
dance, theatre, and fine arts. During the middle school years, students get a
taste of the Fine and Performing Arts Program they will have the opportunity
to experience once they move on to St. Mary’s High School where the
curriculum motivates students to pursue their post-secondary studies in fine
and performing arts.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of our Elementary School’s collaboration
with The Josephine Foundation. In conjunction with The Foundation, the Fine
and Performing Arts Program was developed as curriculum for the High
School and made its debut five years ago.
Unlike other schools, St. Mary’s utilizes professional performers and
directors. This team of passionate instructors inspires our students with
experiences that stimulate their ability to think critically as individuals, and
as a community of artists. This formula makes the St. Mary’s Program a
stand out for success.
“It is through the disciplines of a properly run
performing arts program that young people and adults
can reach for and achieve their dreams regardless of
their race, creed, or nationality,” said Andrew J. Koslosky,
chairman of The Josephine Foundation.
Students are empowered to actively participate in meaningful collaborations
with their fellow students and instructors throughout the year. This crossover
practice enables students to step outside the box and reach their maximum
potential in their performances. Each experience culminates with specific
productions and showcase opportunities that places the multi talents of the
students in the spotlight whether on stage or in the art gallery. Our programs
ensure that students develop a sense of artistic and personal discipline,
responsibility and commitment to the arts.
The Schools of Saint Mary feature an N-12
program in a nurturing, Catholic environment.
Conveniently located in Manhasset,
our beautiful, state-of-the-art campus is
accessible by public transportation.
