The arts are a vital part of our curriculum. For many students, creative expression is a powerful teaching and learning tool—and many of our students find the arts to be a powerful channel for expressing their diverse voices.  

DramaPerforming arts instill both a fundamental knowledge of theater basics and an applied practice of the art. Students learn the many nuances of performance and even practice writing original scenes. 

MusicThe vocal and instrumental music program at Sterne helps students discover and develop their musical talents and skills. Students of all levels are able to participate in a variety of music classes as an elective or after-school club. Student music is showcased at school-wide celebrations and events.

Visual ArtsSterne's visual arts program supports creative expression as students learn to design and direct their own projects based on their interests and curiosity. Sterne's art faculty employ a variety of media and techniques, including painting, drawing, sculpting, and design (including introductory Design Thinking and career-focused courses in the Upper School). The visual arts curriculum includes the language of art, history of art, and hands-on practice for a well-rounded approach to the world of art.
