ARTS VISION

The Arts Program at Capital Prep provides an opportunity for all students to receive a comprehensive and diverse arts education for students in grades PreK – 6th that develops the whole person through a curriculum that integrates the performing and visual arts. We aim to develop the students’ artistic abilities and desires through independent, cooperative, responsible and creative approach.  This strong foundation will provide a lifelong interest and ability in learning and the arts. We believe that these skills and qualities will prepare our students to pursue further educational goals and allow them to contribute to the life and well being of society as a whole.
