The Arts at Marymount

"I believe that the arts provide the highest form of communication in the human experience."
Jae Perez, Visual Arts Department Chair

At Marymount, we create a unified arts community, one which we believe leaves a distinct impact on each student who passes through our doors.  Across both Performing and Visual Arts departments, we strive to augment the Marymount academic program by drawing out the unique perspective and self-expression possessed by each of our girls.  Through our rich Arts offering, each of our students works to develop her strengths and discover new ones.
