The Calvert Hall Arts program, which includes instrumental music, theater, visual arts, and vocal music, instills in our students a lifelong commitment to the creative arts and the world of imagination. For a boy’s education to be complete, it must include more than just the basic academic subjects; time spent in the arts is essential for developing well-rounded learners. In addition to our Fine Arts program, we offer a variety of enriching performing arts opportunities that challenge our students cognitively and creatively. Please direct any questions about our Arts program to our fine arts chairperson, Mr. Brian Ecton at 410-825-4266 ext 153.
