Arts

The arts are integral to the complete education we provide our students in JK–12. Our robust program includes visual art, vocal and instrumental music, and drama—all essential manifestations of the human spirit. The entire school community benefits from the remarkable talents of our students and their teachers through student-produced fine arts events, exhibits, a yearly film festival, and drama productions. We invite you to join us at our events. 

Friends of the Arts

Interested in getting involved with the arts and volunteering? Consider joining Friends of the Arts (FOTA), a volunteer parent organization dedicated to supporting Country Day's fine arts programs in all divisions. Check out the volunteer opportunities.
