Fine Arts Overview
The Fine Arts Program at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School supports several departments within the school, namely vocal and instrumental music, art, and the 5-8th grade musical production. We are proud to support our fine arts department within the school, knowing that exposure to the arts enhances a student's learning and opportunities for personal achievement. The Fine Arts Program works with the Band Boosters, a separate organization that includes the parents of students participating in band.
Financial support for Fine Arts and Humanities is provided beginning the 2017-18 school year through the Home and School Association Parent Participation Program. The funds raised support the development of current Fine Arts activities and ensure the future of these programs for your children.
