Creative Ticket School of Excellence
Mount Saint Charles Academy's Fine Arts Department was named a Creative Ticket School of Excellence. The Creative Ticket School Awards Program is sponsored by the Kennedy Center Alliance for Arts Education Network and locally by the Rhode Island Alliance for Arts Education.
The Creative Ticket School Awards Program recognizes schools that have done an outstanding job of making the arts essential to the education of their students. The criteria include an integration of arts education into the overall school curriculum, ensuring that all of the arts (music, dance, theater, and visual arts) are taught in the curriculum as discrete subjects, use of imaginative learning opportunities, strong and direct parent involvement, teaching about other cultures through the arts, and linking arts education to the community.
Mount was also selected as the state nominee for the national competition.
