Visual & Performing Arts
St. John Bosco High School is committed to increasing opportunities for all students to participate in and understand the arts. To fulfill that mission, we strive to produce and present performances reflecting the highest standards of excellence and diversity indicative of the world in which we live, and to make those performances accessible to the broadest possible audience through arts education.
We believe that the arts are one of humanity's most eloquent means of understanding the world. Through the arts, we share the highest achievements of every culture and find a universal language which permits communication among all peoples. As such, the arts are an essential component of a complete education.
The arts teach discipline, improve self-esteem, inspire creativity and help young people set and reach goals. Knowledge of the arts makes good teachers better and makes participating schools exciting, challenging places where students are encouraged to explore, create and reach their full potential.
School of Music
St. John Bosco's Music Program is recognized as one of the finest and most comprehensive high school programs in Catholic education. Its performing ensembles include the Liturgy Band, Concert Band, Chamber Winds, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensembles, Drum Line, and the Advance Band. In the fall, all of these groups combine to form the St. John Bosco Braves Marching Band.
Students will learn the craft of theatre thorough its many disciplines, including acting/performing, directing, technical theatre design, set construction, lighting, costumes, make-up and publicity.
