Saint Ignatius High School

Fine Arts

The senses come alive in the Fine Arts, where students learn and perform musical pieces, create and exhibit innovative artwork, and showcase their circus-like or theater-worthy shows.

Parents don't need to worry about their sons at Saint Ignatius High School. They'll be challenged on an individual level, presented with opportunities to learn and lead, and given every chance to succeed. All of this is done with a love and care for every student that walks our halls.

The arts are an integral part of a student’s academic development. The Fine Arts Department seeks to cultivate that development through aesthetic experiences. All students are encouraged to pursue their artistic interests. Our courses balance the overall learning process by offering alternatives to deductive reasoning and the purely rational or factual areas of study. This is, therefore, a more experiential, inductive and creative approach to learning through which the student is able to exhibit personal expression. As a result, he learns something valuable about himself and is encouraged to communicate that to others.
