Lake Highland Prep's comprehensive art curriculum offers students dynamic instruction in the fine and performing arts. Students begin their artistic journey in the Lower School. In the Upper School, 9th-12th graders experience conservatory-like programs with advanced classes and competitions in a variety of visual and performing arts media. We are intensely proud of the artistic accomplishments of our talented Highlanders. Many of our graduates pursue their artistic passions in college, and some are called to careers in the arts.
Lake Highland’s band program introduces students to wind and percussion instruments beginning in 5th grade. Students are allowed to enter the program at every grade level thereafter. Beyond the daily ensemble classes, additional extra-curricular ensembles are offered like jazz band and marching band. The program is built on the premise that a positive experience in music will enrich a student’s future experiences regardless of their future pursuits in the arts.
