USJ’s extensive fine arts program begins in the Lower School with visual arts and music enrichment classes. Starting in Jr. Kindergarten, each grade stages annual musical productions, while the visual arts department challenges our students’ artistic talents and showcases them throughout our school and the community through art exhibits and competitions.

Middle School students take classes in band, vocal music, and visual arts. They also have the option to perform in up to two musicals each year and have the opportunity to perform in Upper School theatrical plays and musicals.

In the Upper School, the fine arts curriculum includes drama, band, chorus, and visual arts classes. USJ is one of a few schools in West Tennessee to offer AP Studio Art and AP Music Theory. Each year, Upper School productions include band and vocal concerts, two musical productions, two dramatic productions, and a school-wide art exhibit and talent montage. 

Visual Arts

Our Visual Arts program includes a variety of art forms and competitions beginning in Early Childhood and extending all the way to 12th grade where they develop their senior art portfolios. 

Performing Arts

Performing Arts starts in the lower school where they begin music classes at the early age of 2. Their education continues with the addition of band and choir in middle school, and then on to high school where AP Music Theory and Theatre is added to the curriculum.

Support the Arts

The Arts Guild supports all of USJ’s visual and performing arts, which includes Band, Music, Art, Theater and Drama Classes starting with Pre-K all the way through 12th grade.
