Along with a comprehensive arts curriculum, OLG has one of the best fine arts programs in the area. In art class, students are taught art’s major periods and learn how they align with world history by completing projects that complement our core curriculum. Students can continue developing their creative side with our after school Art Studio.
OLG also has one of the largest Drama Clubs in the area. Students in grades 5 through 8 are involved in producing 3 short plays each fall and a musical each spring. Students are involved in everything from set design to stage crew to performing on stage. Students lead the club and are moderated by OLG staff. There are many benefits that come from including performing arts in schools. Students create friendships across grade levels, learn empathy for others when they take on a new role and grow in poise and self-confidence.
Students who have previously been involved in beginning band are invited to perform with more experienced musicians. They band meets once a week during the school day. Many advanced band students go on to participate in honor band, giving them the chance to connect with students from other Catholic Schools.
Students in grades four through eight can learn to play and instrument and join the school's band. This is a great way to get started on learning how to play an instrument. They band meets once a week during the school day.
