The Arts at Linden Hall

The Visual and Performing Arts are an integral part of human culture and education. Historically, they have served as a means of storytelling, religious enhancement, social documentation, and personal expression. Ultimately, the Arts reflect the conventions of the society in which they are created. At Linden Hall, we teach an appreciation for historic and contemporary Arts through hands-on experiences and art history. We strive towards nurturing each student's creativity and celebrating individuality.

Linden Hall students are encouraged to:

  • Understand the cross-curricular connection between the Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math, as part of the STEAM curriculum, as well as relate the Arts to the fields of English and History, and apply their knowledge;
  • Embrace the influences of their International peers;
  • share their talents beyond the classroom through exhibitions and performances.

Programs of Study

Dance

Students at Linden Hall have the opportunity to participate in Dance as either an academic course worth a half-credit in either Physical Education or Art or as an extracurricular activity. Only one academic course in Dance is offered per semester, however students may audition for the Linden Hall Dance Team and receive 0.5 credit in Physical Education for a full-year commitment.

Music

Music classes at Linden Hall develop comprehensive musicianship with a focus on musical literacy and development. We believe that all students are musical by nature and have tremendous potential to learn and enjoy music. Students may take music courses for credit and also have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular music activities such as Sinfonia, Musea Chamber Choir, and Community Musicians.
