Visual & Performing Arts

Central to the Visual and Performing Arts education at Fordham Prep is the objective that students understand what goes into a work of art from conceptual, technical, and cultural points of view; and how, in the spirit of cura parsonalis, these help contribute to the makeup of a well-rounded person.

The Arts curriculum is designed to enable students to understand and appreciate how a work of art is created and viewed. The curriculum’s design stimulates growth through self-discovery and self-expression. Students’ skills develop through practice and appreciation of techniques. Classes are structured in tandem with students’ needs in subsequent years.
