The arts are fundamental to our humanity — and to an Agnes Irwin education.
Agnes Irwin girls dream big, stretch their brains, and ditch their comfort zones. Led by a faculty of juried visual artists, published playwrights, and professional performance artists, our students delve deep into the art of self-expression and discover the artist within.
Acting, scriptwriting, casting, theatrical design, costuming, and directing are explored in our thriving Theater program. From Prekindergarten through 12th grade, our girls have the opportunity to produce and perform on our stage.
The joy of singing and the sweet sound of music fills the hallways — and the stages — at Agnes Irwin. From instrumental ensembles to specializing in music theory and composition, we've got you covered.
Ballet. Jazz. Modern. Hip-Hop. Ethnic. The Dance program at AIS focuses on the artistic expression and physical benefits of this fluid and emotional art form.
From traditional darkroom photography, to digital photographic technology, and alternative processing techniques, students have the opportunity to discover the world around them and share their work — through their lens.
Students delve into digital design and communication through our Media Arts program. Hands-on experience with our digital technologies and state-of-the-art Innovation Center provide opportunities to develop unique and personal expressions.
Diving into fundamental skills while exploring personal creative vision are hallmarks of our program. Students explore the elements of art and the world around them as they express themselves through visual art, two- and three-dimensional design, and drawing.
