Performing and Visual Arts Leader

Pius XI Catholic High School is renowned for the extraordinary experience it is able to offer all students in the performing and visual arts concentrations.

Working alongside professional teaching artists, students are offered countless opportunities to explore, refine, and cultivate their creative voices.

Growing in Their Performance

The Performing Arts program at Pius XI Catholic High School focuses on the areas of Theater, Dance, Choral Music, and Instrumental Music.

Students work and perform in Pius XI’s Black Box Theatre and at The Father Robert V. Carney Performing Arts Center, a community arts facility that is part of the Pius XI campus and espouses a state-of-the-art theater and two gallery spaces.

At Pius XI, we’ve been blessed with generous benefactors that share our vision of providing extraordinary spaces for a students to work and perform.

Growing Through Their Work

The Visual Arts program allows students to explore various mediums – from print to digital – while developing a unique and individual voice as an artist.

Communicating the impact of art as a positive force for both expression and discussion is one of the program’s priorities.
