The Lawrenceville School offers a wealth of opportunities for students to study and practice the arts because it is an essential element in broadening a person’s approach to problem solving, to aesthetic enjoyment, to other people, to life itself.
Students are encouraged to explore their talents on the stage, in the performance hall, and through exhibitions. Visiting artists, lecturers, and performers are regularly brought to campus.
Reach Out to the Arts provides students with varied opportunities to sample a dazzling slice of cultural life in New York City and Philadelphia. The School's easy access to these major metropolitan areas enables students to savor the cultural events continuously arrayed in these cities. Trips to museums, the symphony, the ballet, jazz concerts, opera, art galleries, and a host of theatrical productions abound. The ultimate goal of the program is to broaden students' views of the world around them.
