A rich arts program woven through the curriculum is yet another reason Worcester Prep is worth it. Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Lower School students enjoy weekly music and visual arts activities multiple times a week, and every sixth-grade student learns to play a musical instrument.
Middle School and Upper School students have opportunities to perform in the band or chorus, and choose from arts electives including dance, drama, drawing, painting, sculpting, ceramics, printmaking, photography and digital media.
Research shows that arts education leads to higher test scores, improved problem-solving skills, and enhanced creativity – all skills essential to future success. Visual and performing arts encourage self-expression, and the rehearsals and practice required by performing arts also build teamwork, self-discipline, and a strong work ethic.
The arts program brings the school community together, drawing families and friends to campus for exhibitions, concerts, and plays.
