Academics – Music
Music is offered to students in all grade levels. Music classes expose students to the universal language of music, freeing their imagination, making them more intellectually flexible, more cooperative, and better problem solvers.
St. Agnes Academy’s music program, with its piano lab, includes a very demanding piano program, which starts in first grade. Music history and appreciation is taught from fourth through eighth grade.Choir is a third important medium of the music classes. Students from second grade and up participate as the school choir, serving through this ministry, during the weekly school Mass.
In recent years, music and art have provided major support in integrating core curriculum subjects with special area subjects. The music teacher also incorporates writing across the curriculum by requiring middle school students to write a research paper following the same criteria taught in the science and language arts classes.
