The creative and performing arts hold a vibrant place in a Thaden education and the life of our school. All students are required to take courses in the arts that are designed to instill life-long appreciation for the creative process. Through interdisciplinary engagement with music, painting, sculpture, drama, dance, and film, students can deepen and enlarge their powers of creativity and personal expression, often addressing complex social questions and issues. In spring 2021, we will open our performing arts center. Situated on the northwest corner of our West Campus, this state-of-the-art facility will allow our students to hone and showcase their craft for the greater community.
