Our Visual & Performing Arts and Computer Science (VPA + CS) department has been a leader in curricular innovation and design. The department is in their second year of their new course “Frosh Creation: Think, Make, Share.” In this class, the worlds of art, computational thinking, music, and computer science fuse together and provide students opportunities to develop their teaming and design thinking skills while incorporating key elements from each discipline.
In conjunction with our VPA colleagues at De La Salle, we are able to offer our students more than 20 different course options! These range from beginner to AP course work with classes that are sure to appeal to the artist that resides in each student. The department is committed to meet the needs and interests of our students and continually revises, revamps, and creates new courses.
One of the department’s biggest collaborations is the annual Winton Arts Festival—a multi-day celebration of student work and performances. This takes place each spring on the campuses of both Carondelet and De La Salle. Be sure to watch for more information in the spring!
