The Fine Arts Department at Bishop McNamara offers one of the most extensive arts educations in the Washington, DC area. Our large musical ensembles, intimate dance classes, theatrical productions, and art studio offer comfortable, rewarding, fun, yet challenging environments for all participating students. We encourage the growth and success of the students. One credit of Fine Arts is required for graduation. Performance based courses may require additional fees and/or fundraising.
The Fine Arts Programs include Dance, Music (Band & Orchestra and Choir), Theater and Visual Arts, with a FADE Program and Guest Artist Series.
Fine Arts Diploma Endorsement
The F.A.D.E. Program will serve to refine students’ talents and skill, cultivate a community of respect, appreciation and understanding of the arts, and acknowledge students’ dedication to the Fine Arts throughout their high school career. Students who graduate with the Fine Arts Diploma Endorsement receive a notation on their transcripts and a special honor certificate at graduation. Students may apply at the beginning of their Sophomore year. See your Fine Arts teacher for the application form and requirements specific to your major arts focus.
Spring 2013 Fine Arts Placement Information for the 2013-2014 School Year will be updated on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013. Some arts have an April 12th online registration deadline, so don't forget the check back soon.
Thank you for your interest in the Arts here at BMHS!
