Excerpt from the Diocesan Fine Arts Curriculum Standards, June 2010:
“Catholic Arts Education is based on the belief that God has endowed each of us with talents and gifts which He expects us to develop and use to the best of our ability. From the dawn of civilization the arts have been an essential part of the human experience. In every culture the arts provide a record of the finest achievement of the human spirit and are a means by which we define and measure culture. The arts form a basis of civilization and reveal dimensions of our cultural heritage accessible in no other way. The arts communicate and shape human thoughts and feelings. If the arts are an inseparable part of our culture, then they should be an inseparable part of the school curriculum.”
The mission of the Performing Arts Program at St. John Bosco Catholic School is to foster understanding, appreciation, expression, and creative participation in the artistic process.
Simplicity is the Gospel Value emphasized in the music curriculum.
