The Fine and Performing Arts programs play a major part in an Ascension education. We believe that by providing a strong arts education, it will enhance a student’s ability to think more critically, become a more sophisticated problem solver, and boost their creativity. These indispensable skills—along with the many others gleaned from participation in the arts—not only strengthens a student’s aptitude in the core subjects, but markedly enriches their journey into adulthood. It is for these reasons, we encourage you to play your part by joining the Fine Arts Alliance (FAA). By joining the FAA, you will be partnering with Ascension to help elevate the arts programs by providing additional resources. With these additional resources, our Fine Arts instructors can continue to offer the programming that keeps our school as one of the very best in South Louisiana.
When it comes to our children, one of the most important gifts we can provide for them is opportunity. It not only prepares them for their future but also gives them the independence to discover and define who they are: who they want to be. Our faculty and staff focus on developing the whole child, with a curriculum designed to teach lifelong learning skills.
