Creative problem solving, self-expression ...
Creative problem solving and new avenues of self-expression are at the core of Wilbraham & Monson Academy’s Fine & Performing Arts (FPA) program. We offer a full range of learning in theater, music and the visual arts, including digital media, which benefit the entry-level student as well as the advanced artist or performer seeking a higher-level experience. We strive to teach students the skills and thought processes that ensure a deeper understanding of both their immediate and global cultural environments.
Three credits in the Fine & Performing Arts are required. Three trimester electives or one yearlong class can meet this requirement. Nearly 30 FPA courses are offered. It is recommended that students work to meet their Fine & Performing Arts requirement early in their time at WMA to allow flexibility for AP courses and special interest electives in Grades 11 and 12.
