Fine Arts


With courses offered in both the visual and performing arts, there are ample opportunities at The Mount for our students to engage their passion for creativity. The key to our students' success in the arts, whether it be state and national competition, college acceptance, scholarship, or award-winning performances, stems from our program's insistence that students strive to make and engage in challenging, authentic, and deeply personal work.
