The creative and performing arts hold a vibrant place in a Thaden education and the life of our school. All students take courses in the arts that are designed to instill a 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.

Situated on the northwest corner of our West Campus, the Performing Arts Center is a state-of-the-art facility that allows our students to hone and showcase their craft for the greater community.
