Fine Arts

Art is an integral part of the curriculum at Summit Academy. Designed to stimulate each student’s sense of well-being and creativity, it builds upon their communication and critical thinking skills, and introduces them to a range of artistic activities. Projects often are tied to the curriculum in other subjects, as we want the students to link disciplines and work with various forms of media, including digital technology, art supplies, found and recycled objects and language. Art is taught in different environments to broaden the students’ experiences and visions of art. It is our goal that students will not just learn new techniques, but that art will inspire them, inform their ideas and open them up to the world.

Music is designed to be hands-on, well-rounded and performative in nature. Students work towards developing the theoretical and physical skills needed for music making, and, in later years, explore the cultural impact and history of music. The curriculum encourages students to be creative, take risks, boost confidence, and draw links between subjects such as math, language, and physical education. Our Elementary music education program is developed and delivered through a community partnership with Joyful Sounds Music Studio.
