The Arts (Dance, Music, Visual Arts, & Theater) will be integrated into all areas of study.
The Arts (Dance, Music, Visual Arts, & Theater) will be integrated into all areas of study. Specific foundational skills in movement, public speaking, and visual expression will be developed in the first year of attendance. Subsequent years will allow for more individual exploration.
Weekly Arts Workshops will offer personalized guidance and structured opportunities for individual growth. All faculty will develop meaningful challenges that require students to use the arts to express understanding (e.g., design and model an environment that reflects an era).
Additional opportunities for students to engage in the arts will be provided through open studio time, independent study, mentorships, and participation in the offerings of larger arts organizations, such as the Scholastic Arts & Writing program, the NH Educational Theater Guild, the Monadnock Valley Music Festival, and the NH Dance Institute.
