PreK3-8th grade students have a multitude of opportunities for self-expression through the fine arts program in classrooms, studios, and spotlights.
They learn to sculpt clay, compose music, write skits, run lights and sound, harmonize, and tell stories through dance. They draw social, cultural, and historic connections, finding new depth in their classroom lessons.
Music, dance, visual arts, and theatre are integrated into the Corbett Prep educational philosophy. Enrichment opportunities during and after school give students more experiences to embrace and develop their artistic talents.
It is our hope that our students develop and strengthen personal creativity and self-confidence as they enjoy the creative process.
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.
The arts promote cognitive development, health benefits, positive growth in behavior and attitude, and strong, long-term connections with the arts community.
Community School of the Arts
After school and on weekends, Corbett Prep runs the Community School of the Arts (CSA) for students from all over Tampa Bay. Students can choose from private and group lessons in music, dance, visual arts and musical theatre, and they share their work in recitals and other performances when the class is complete. CSA gives students interested in the arts the opportunity to hone their craft and try new pursuits.
