VISUAL, PERFORMING, & COMMUNICATION ARTs
The Visual, Performing, and Communication Arts Department strives to provide a myriad of experiences and a comprehensive program for students in preschool through Grade 12. Drama, dance, music, visual arts, literary arts, forensics, and film courses enable students to reach their full potential and encourage them to experiment with and develop creativity.
In music, our performing groups, both vocal and instrumental, accomplish remarkable feats that place them among the finest programs in the state every year. Students taking classes within our department of theatre and dance participate in experiences that are often found at the college level. The visual, film and literary arts programs produce outstanding young artists, some of whom have works exhibited and recognized on the national level.
Students in our arts programs at Detroit Country Day School have flourished in the metro Detroit area and nationally under the guidance of our visionary arts faculty. Our faculty's enthusiasm to share their passion for the arts is truly infectious and inspiring for our students. This enthusiasm led to the creation of our high school conservatory program over 15 years ago. The goal of the conservatory program is to provide high-level arts curriculum to students interested in the arts as a profession to matriculate to reputable art, theatre, and music schools.
There are so many careers that draw from skills you learn by being involved in the arts, both directly and indirectly. I look forward to continuing to build upon this for the careers of the future.
