Arts


Arts are a vital component of a student’s academic and co-curricular education. 

Opened in 2006, the Burgin Center for the Arts is home to our arts faculty, rehearsal spaces, a ceramics studio, and performance spaces (including a proscenium theatre, a black box theatre, and two recital halls).  

After classes are completed for the day, the Burgin Center for the Arts has no shortage of visitors. Our arts Performance Group Activities span all four art disciplines (music, dance, theatre, visual arts), and students can be found rehearsing for upcoming performances, crafting their art, or designing pages for our yearbook, the Karux.

From exhibits in the Cofrin Gallery to theatre performances, music recitals, and dance concerts, the Burgin Center is where students’ creative energy really comes alive!
