Arts at Westtown

At Westtown School, we believe the arts are integral to every child’s development, and an important aspect of every student’s education. In each discipline, we emphasize collaboration and the creative process, and our innovative arts curriculum offers opportunities for creative exploration, performance, and the joy of self-expression. Our arts programs are designed to cultivate  the innate creativity, curiosity, and inventiveness of our students. In all divisions, students engage in a rich array of music, performing arts, and visual arts that foster skills in performance , musical exploration, and creative expression. Arts classes add dimension to the curriculum and encourage hands-on learning and critical thinking. 

In the Upper School, our commitment to training the next generation of artists and leaders is evident through a collaborative and process-oriented approach across visual arts, music, theater, and dance. Our state-of-the-art facilities support artistic exploration, and our graduates go on to excel in prestigious art programs. We invite you to explore each of our divisional arts programs below.
