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.

The Linden Hall Arts Program — including music, theater, dance, and visual arts — develops students’ skills and appreciation for historical and contemporary aspects of the arts. We strive to nurture each student's creativity and celebrate her 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 humanities concepts;
  • Embrace the influences of their international peers; and
  • Share their talents beyond the classroom through exhibitions, performances, and competitions.

Since Linden Hall's founding in 1746, Vespers services have provided a strong foundation in the history of the school. From 1746 to the 1970s, Sunday evening vespers were a weekly tradition in which the entire Linden Hall community contributed. Vespers services have changed throughout the year, and they are now only a yearly tradition. To read more about Linden Hall Vespers tradition, visit Lancasteronline.
