Mount Saint Charles Academy has always believed that the arts are an essential component of our mission “to form the whole person: spirit, soul, heart, mind and body.” In the past few years the addition of a new arts facility and new fine arts teachers has created a renewed spirit of enthusiasm for the arts that permeates the Mount community.
Mount Saint Charles now has in its curriculum a wide variety of music, drama, dance and art classes, in addition to many before and after school extracurricular fine and performing arts activities.
Moreover, the new personnel and resources have prompted already creative teachers to incorporate the arts into their lesson plans and assessments and to collaborate with fine arts educators on interdisciplinary projects.
Our Fine Arts Community Outreach Program gives students many opportunities to share their talents with people of all ages at school and community centers throughout the area.
Many teachers use the arts to teach cultural awareness and foster an appreciation of diverse heritages and conditions, and the school’s music programs have created meaningful opportunities for students to meet and share their gifts with young people of other countries.
Finally, Mount students’ parents are very supportive of and involved in their children’s fine arts activities and contribute to them by sharing their own talents and working behind the scenes.
