Welcome to the Arts and Innovation program! Arts and Innovation reach beyond traditional STEM programing. Arts and Innovation is a dynamic, diverse, and evolving program of studies that embraces the importance of traditional music and arts, while also offering the latest education in business, product development, performance, design, production, computer sciences, and media communications. The Arts & Innovation curricula is inspired by St. Francis de Sales’ call to individuals to contribute positively to society by freely sharing their unique gifts and talents.
Students are challenged to live their lives with a mind open to creativity, learning, and growth. Upon completion of Arts & Innovation courses, students will be proficient in seven key skills for the 21st Century: Curiosity and Imagination, Effective Oral and Written Communication, Accessing and Analyzing Information, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Collaboration and Leadership, Agility and Adaptability, and Initiative and Entrepreneurship.

Our Freshman Innovation Seminar provides foundational skills in building these seven essential 21st Century skills while also incorporating learning content in the following areas: art studio, performance, coding, and innovation (i.e. design thinking with robotics). There are 28 innovation electives for our upperclassmen in their course selections that integrate these skills.
