Central to life at Fenn is a recognition that artistic expression is a human necessity. Boys who excel in the arts are as valued here as those who perform well on the athletic field or in the classroom. The arts are integral to a Fenn education, providing a fertile ground for boys to develop intuitive skills, understand other cultures, and find their voice. The arts are not just a classroom exercise at Fenn. They infuse daily life.
"Boys are unabashedly excited to engage in creative risk-taking in ways that are unique to a single-sex school."- Mike Salvatore, Chair of Arts Department, Music Coordinator, Choral Director
The Fenn School's hands-on approach to the arts engages boys by giving them firsthand knowledge of the creative process: student paintings and photographs brighten nearly every wall; student musicians perform at all-school meetings; and plays bring the entire community together to celebrate our students’ talents. The array of offerings provides something to capture the interest of every student – vocal and instrumental music, high-tech and traditional visual arts, the craft and art of woodworking, and every area of theater production and performance.
