Student of the arts have several opportunities for learning supplementary to their curricular objectives. Three honors societies and Salt & Light Studios offer valuable exposure to arts in the professional realm and advanced opportunities for networking and enrichment.
The Salt & Light Studio is a symposium that brings students into relevant, engaging connections with professional arts culture-shapers to hear their stories, learn from their artistic and spiritual journeys, and find encouragement to discover their own unique paths in life. An important aspect of the Salt & Light Studio is to provide students with an opportunity to connect on their own art-making, and to have a forum to collaborate on positively affecting the culture of the upper school through creativity.
Studio membership is selected on an annual basis by an application review board comprised of members of the arts faculty.
Guests have included musical artist Amy Grant, songwriters Ashley Gorley and Natalie Hemby, producer Ben Howard, author and producer Karen Kingsbury, musical artist Melinda Doolittle, and more.
