Arts

Welcome

At St. Agnes Academy, creativity takes the form of a constant challenge: to be curious, to express, and know more, to question more deeply, to match one another’s intellectual hunger.
This kind of creativity isn’t confined to one school of art. Our students bring in all areas of study into their work, curating their own art shows, building imaginative stage sets, and writing compelling documentaries. You might say we celebrate all our students as artists, each as a unique medium—from the theater to the dance studio, the art lab to the choir risers. Guided by our curiosity-driven, always encouraging teachers, each St. Agnes student finds and hones her ability to innovate, express herself, and explore.

Student Life Center

Our campus is undergoing a transformation which will deeply impact our performing arts programs. The construction of our new Sr. Jane Meyer, O.P. Assembly and Performance Hall, named for an alum, by an alum, will benefit each student on our campus. With this 1,300 seat multi-purpose venue, all can comfortably participate in the rich traditions of becoming Academy women, along with their family and friends. Our approximately 300-seat Maureen O'Gara Hackett Balcony will double as a critical meeting space for students, faculty/staff, and parents. 

The Jamieson Family Dance Studio will be a multi-functional, rehearsal space for our thriving dance and growing wellness programs, offering much-needed space to serve all departments of the school. Our dance teams have continued to grow and take top awards around the country. With this new studio, our current space will transform into a fulltime health and wellness studio to accommodate our growing wellness program including yoga and Zumba. These two courses, also searching for a dedicated practice venue, will flourish in a this re-purposed space.
