Instruction in the Fine Arts
The art and culture of Western civilization has flourished under the patronage of the Catholic Church because it views beauty as the "attractive radiance of the truth" of Divine Revelation. The study of the fine arts is integrated throughout the Academy's curriculum as a complementary and vital part of the student's education. The students also receive separate instruction in both music and art. Students are exposed to masterpieces in music, art and architecture which comprise Catholic culture through the centuries. The music program includes the study of the theory and notation of music and trains the students to sight read. The student body sings pieces from the great treasury of Catholic music, including Gregorian chant.
