Building Intellectual and Creative Confidence

Kindergartners program robots to maneuver their way through a town they built in the Tomlin Family Application Lab, a coding component to a unit on how communities function. In PE, students practice sportsmanship and teamwork and challenge themselves individually as they build skills, play games and try new activities inside two gyms, outside on two fields and down by the lake. Music classes have fun learning to scat like Ella Fitzgerald during their unit on jazz, and drama students giggle as they unleash their imaginations in improvisation exercises.

Specials classes at Corbett Prep immerse students in an array of classes designed to spark new interests, tap in to students' multiple intelligences, and create a mindset of infinite possibilities.

Research continues to support that to accelerate the learning process for students, schools need to make meaningful connections with music, art, dance, drama, physical education, Spanish and STEAM.

Our Specials staff adds joy, imagination, creativity, energy, and confidence to the lives of our students every day.

An Inspiring Education

Sparking New Interests


Fine Arts

Students express themselves creatively in music, visual arts, drama and dance.

Pick up a paintbrush or a microphone in Corbett Prep's Specials classes that focus on the fine arts. All students benefit from engaging lessons in music, the visual arts and drama/dance.

App Lab

Critical thinking meets creativity in this STEAM-inspired space.

The Tomlin Family Application Lab spans two stories and is packed with high-tech and low-tech equipment for students to use in projects that enhance the classroom curriculum.

Take a Trip to the App Lab

Three fifth graders construct paper rollercoasters on tables in the App Lab.



Students's world view expands as they gain appreciation for other cultures and languages. 

At all grade levels, students receive instruction in Spanish, learning vocabulary and grammar as well as cultural traditions, geography and history from native Spanish speakers. A close relationship with a school in Spain allows for a student exchange program at Corbett Prep and in Madrid.

The value of a global mindset

Physical Education

Cooperative, active play time exercises bodies and minds.

The Physical Education program grows with the students taking them through age-appropriate activities that include recreational sports and games, team sports and exercises that establish healthy living habits for life. Research shows that movement and physical activity during the school day leads to increased academic performance.

Specials at Middle School

Middle School students benefit from the same variety of Specials classes but follow a different kind of schedule. Spanish, Design and Physical Education are part of the regular schedule year round. Fine Arts classes (drama, visual arts and music) make up the Middle School Fine Arts Wheel. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders spend a trimester focusing on each of the three wheel classes and then rotate to the next one.

"Our Specials Team is what makes a Corbett Prep education so magical because students have the chance to explore a wide variety of subjects. It is so rewarding to see a student light up when they tap into their natural talents!"
