Our music program begins in Pre-K and runs through 8th grade. Starting in Pre-K, the program focuses on singing, rhythm, moving, and exploring the world around us through music and sound. Our students love to sing, dance, and play percussion instruments, including a classroom set of Orff instruments. We also have a ukulele program that starts in 2nd grade.
Pre-K through 8th grade performs every year in our Christmas Show. 7th and 8th grade run the tech and help with the younger grades. It is a wonderful event where students work together to make sure every aspect of the production runs smoothly.
Visitation Academy is a special place to learn music at every age. In 5th through 8th grades, students have general music class once a week and band three times a week. Our band program includes woodwinds, brass, and percussion.
The Chapel Choir is open to all 3rd through 8th grade students and rehearses every Monday. The students sing at all of the school masses throughout the year. They also sing at special masses including Graduation, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, Field Day, and the Advent Lighting.
The Drama Club is open to all 6th through 8th grade students and rehearses every Thursday. The students learn elements of acting, improv, and theater tech.
