Arts Overview

Built to Create

Boys need the opportunity to express themselves in meaningful ways. So Blue Ridge School helps boys reach beyond their comfort zones and express themselves creatively. Within our all-boys, all-boarding environment, students have the safe, supportive environment they need to explore the musical, visual, dramatic arts, whether they are a novice or a seasoned artist. While some arts focus on individual talents, others require group participation, giving boys a sense of how they, as an individual, play a key role in the result.

We want boys to graduate from Blue Ridge School with confidence in their own talents, as well as an appreciation of the cultural arts as a whole. So before they graduate, every boy will have completed at least one arts experience during his time here.

Blue Ridge School’s cultural arts help boys push past their comfort zones and try out their talents in a supportive environment.
