Fine and Performing Arts (Co-curricula)

Visitors are often surprised by Geneva’s emphasis upon the fine and performing arts—delighted to be sure, but surprised nonetheless. What they find so pleasantly surprising is the fact that from the very earliest grades our students are really drawing and singing and painting and acting and sculpting. Whether it is a grammar school chamber ensemble performing an arrangement of one of Palestrina’s madrigals, a sixth-grade play about the power of a child’s experience of beauty even in the horrors of the Holocaust, or a group of grammar and dialectic students making hand-pulled prints of sycamore leaves in fall colors, Geneva students are actively performing and producing works that are truly beautiful, not simply taking part in cute performances and making crafts.

Our emphasis on the arts rests upon a fundamental belief that all true education begins in wonder and depends upon the imagination to flourish.  This is why the arts form part of the core curriculum from K4–12th grade. All grammar and dialectic students study choral and instrumental music, studio art, and drama through eighth grade, while electives in the rhetoric school are designed to allow students to engage more deeply in one of these areas of the fine and performing arts.

The arts flourish beyond the limits of the core curriculum as well. Geneva has a thriving instrumental music program that makes private instrumental lessons and a rich variety of orchestral ensembles available for students of all ages and skill levels. Students have the opportunity of extending their learning in drawing, printmaking, and sculpting with after-school programs in studio art. Geneva also has a vibrant extracurricular drama program for dialectic and rhetoric school students, the TGS Merely Players drama troupe. Our troupe produces both fall and spring performances, allowing all students the opportunity of taking part in a drama production.
