Why study the arts?
Research shows innumerable benefits of exposure to the arts. Students of the arts have demonstrated improved brain function, strong problem solving and critical thinking skills, and higher test scores.
Music, dance, visual arts, and theatre are integrated into the Corbett Prep educational philosophy. Students have a multitude of opportunities for self-expression through the arts, and performance experiences help build stage presence and confidence both inside and outside classrooms.
Electives, clubs, and special curriculum options for musical theatre, chorus, art, band, dance, and drama provide more opportunities for deeper and meaningful learning. Our Community School of the Arts allows students from Corbett Prep and the greater Tampa area to participate in professionally styled performances. The result is a splendid tapestry that teachers, entertains, enriches, and encourages creativity and imagination.
"Thanks for the wonderful show James and the Giant Peach Jr. Special thanks to Mr. LeBlanc, Mrs. McBride and Mr. McColley for always encouraging and guiding our daughter. She has honed her singing voice with private lessons with Mrs. McBride. We look forward to more opportunities for growth and success!"
