At Boys Prep, we strive to nurture the whole scholar - mind and body. We offer a rigorous, well-balanced curriculum taught by content-certified specialists, and scholars also participate in "specials" that expand their creativity and promote a healthy lifestyle. These programs help students develop skills such as self-expression, perseverance, and improving based on feedback early on in life that will help carry them through college and ultimately lead fulfilling lives.
The visual arts program is rooted in teaching strong technical skills while prioritizing student driven vision and creative expression. Projects are centered on one medium at a time, including painting, drawing, collage, sculpture and printmaking. During the artmaking process, students are encouraged to build awareness and self-reflection to better understand their own unique creative process.
