The oversized windows in our McGuire Fine Arts Center provide plenty of natural light to our large, open studios for painting, drawing, ceramics and photography. A fully-equipped dark room is available for photography students of all levels. Additionally, a state-of-the-art digital lab includes 12 iMac computers equipped with Adobe Creative Suite for both digital photography and portfolio development.
Students have the ability to explore the history of art and its origins. With three sections of AP Art History, the course will cover everything from prehistoric cave paintings to contemporary art of today.
Dance | Performances
Students in the Abbey Dancers Program choreograph and perform routines in jazz, ballet, pointe, and tap, while those who prefer dancing with a partner take ballroom dancing. Our dancers gain performance experience both on and off campus.
Orchestra | Band
Our music program offers students the chance to engage in one-on-one private lessons with experienced teachers as well as the opportunity to partake in one of our many ensembles: Sinfonia, our talented orchestra; or our Chamber Ensemble, which focuses on smaller, classical works. Additional musical opportunities include participation in rock bands and jazz combos.
In addition to participation in the winter musical, vocal students have the opportunity to participate in Abbey Singers, our co-ed chorus, Abbey Road, our a cappella group, and Enharmonix, our Jazz ensemble.
