Group activities will be facilitated to build confidence
An SNA Marianapolis International School education begins in the traditional classroom space, but it does not end there. Here, learning continues on athletic fields, across dance floors, and behind camera lenses. At SNA Marianapolis, the Middle and Upper School students must participate in two seasons out of three for extracurricular activities every year. For our elementary students, seasonal participation in group activities will be facilitated to build confidence, promote wellness, and hone interpersonal skills.
The joys of creating by providing safe spaces to explore
SNA Marianapolis helps students discover the joys of creating by providing safe spaces to explore, make mistakes, collaborate, and succeed. From the curious novice to the lifelong learner, the arts program helps develop knowledge, skill, and appreciation within music, dance, and theater.
The drama program
Students have three opportunities per year to participate in the drama program. Typically, offerings are as follows:
- Fall – Drama
- Winter – Comedy
- Spring – Musical
Classes occur during the academic day
Students interested in dance have a variety of ways to get moving! Classes occur during the academic day and include courses from beginner tap to advanced dance technique. Additionally, students can participate in dance through the extracurricular program; however students choose to dance, their journey culminates in semi-annual performances for the community.
Opportunities for the talented artist to explore these passions
While visual arts are most often part of the academic curriculum, there are plenty of opportunities for the talented artist to explore these passions in the extracurricular realm, too. Media Team, for example, is a group of students who works with the communications department to capture images from extracurriculars all across campus, and help with the graphic and written composition to accompany these photos in the school’s magazine. Similarly, there are yearbook and art magazine positions that create opportunities for students to focus on highlighting the visual and performing arts through annual publications as well.
Stay healthy – mind and body
Many students use extracurricular activities to stay healthy – mind and body. Whether they take center stage in a dramatic production, or find spiritual balance through yoga, students grow in countless ways outside the classroom.
