Falmouth Academy’s emphasis on the fine and performing arts encourages students to strive for a Renaissance approach to life which celebrates creative as well as intellectual growth. The arts at our school cross disciplines and traditional boundaries. The entire school is a gallery of changing student exhibits featuring photography, ceramics, sculpture, painting, drawing, wood-working, calligraphy, and drawing with AutoCAD. Performing arts electives include stagecraft, theatre, film, jazz, instrumental chamber music, and chorus. Actors and stagecraft designers mount three or more theatre productions annually, while student musicians from all six ensembles collaborate to present a major concert each trimester.
In addition to the numerous arts electives students take, every student participates in Arts-Across-the-Curriculum, a unique program that brings art into the academic classes.
Studying drama and music at Falmouth Academy I developed confidence, camaraderie and a unique voice, which became my greatest assets as a professional actor. These are benefits that I continue to reap in all aspects of my life.
