WMA Arts Enrichment Requirements 2013-2014
Completion of the Arts Enrichment Program is a graduation requirement.
We believe that participating in the arts, as an observer, is a valuable and enriching experience and one that differs meaningfully from strictly being an active participant. To encourage this artistic interchange, we support our Arts Enrichment Program by making the following obligations a graduation requirement:
- Each upper school student must complete two (2) Arts Enrichment credits each trimester, for a total of six (6) credits per year. These credits may be earned either on or off campus at designated offerings.
- Students will receive one (1) Arts Enrichment credit for each on-campus Arts Enrichment opportunity attended and two (2) credits for each school-organized off-campus Arts Enrichment opportunity. If a student attends an off-campus cultural Fine and Performing Arts event (concert, museum, dance, etc.) with his/her family the student may earn one (1) credit for that activity by writing a one page paper describing what the event was, when the event occurred, where the event occurred, who participated, and a review of the event.
- Students who do not fulfill the Arts Enrichment requirement in a given trimester will be assigned to an additional, and specific, Arts Enrichment opportunity the following trimester. If the student fails to meet this make-up obligation, they will receive four hours of campus work detail for each unfulfilled credit.
- This is an ungraded requirement which does not count as a course.
