Performing arts are celebrated and appreciated at St. Pius. While
opening up creativity and opportunities for personal growth to students,
there are benefits to the whole person. Numerous studies have shown
that studying music, whether by playing a musical instrument or
singing/choral experiences, increases the ability to hear, focus, and
Acting provides students the opportunity to learn and
study people through character study. Participation as a member of the
technical crew affords the acquisition of technical knowledge for
lighting or sound systems, management of the show, precision of set
construction, placement and movement, costume creation and proper
application of stage make-up, etc.
Skills required of any
performer increases academic performance, and the fine arts progam
builds self-esteem and formation of the whole student.
