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.
