Pursuing the Arts at StC

The arts are an integral part of the St. Christopher's experience. We recognize the significant benefits of creative self-expression and are therefore committed to presenting every boy with a wide variety of opportunities to discover and develop their interests in the visual, industrial and performing arts. These opportunities are offered through classes, ensembles, private instruction and co-curricular clubs and activities.

Educational experiences in the arts benefit our students in many ways:

List of 6 items.

  • Creativity and Innovation

    The ability to think outside the box and utilize imaginative thinking helps our students find novel solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow.  
  • Critical Thinking and Analysis

    From increased reading and math scores to improved spatial reasoning, experiences in the arts have positive impacts in the classroom and beyond.
  • Emotional Intelligence and Empathy

    Artistic pursuits offer our boys a chance to explore complex emotions, both in themselves and in others, providing perspective and helping encourage healthy relationships.  
  • Cultural Appreciation

    Study of artistic expressions from different countries and historical time periods gives our students a better understanding of the world they live in.  
  • Communication and Collaboration

    The ability to connect with others through shared experiences, common goals and mutual appreciation helps build skills that are vital to our boys' successes as they grow into adulthood.
  • Well-being and Mental Health

    Artistic pursuits are a significant source of joy and stress relief in our community. We strive to help every St. Christopher’s student find healthy ways to channel their emotions and discover their identities, and the arts are a core part of that endeavor.
