The Arts

Notre Dame High School's offerings in Visual Arts range from basic courses in Art and Painting, Photography and Ceramics to advanced courses in two and three dimensional design.  Students may choose foundation studies that introduce the concepts and techniques of art, photography and ceramics.  Those who elect to concentrate in courses designed to prepare them for post-high school art training find advanced level instruction available if they satisfy the criteria for admission. 

Notre Dame offers many opportunities for the student wanting to pursue his/her talent. Through course work and in co-curricular activities students may be involved in productions, whether onstage or behind the scenes. Students can participate in the building, painting and technical aspects of productions. School productions include:

  • Evening of Theatrics in November
  • Christmas Concert in December
  • FUSION (Dance Performance) in January
  • Spring Musical in February/March
  • Courtyard Concerts in April
  • Spring Drama in May
  • Spring Arts Concert and Festival in May

The Performing Arts Department also offers summer camps emphasizing dance, voice, acting and scenic painting during the month of July.
