Distinctive Experiences

The Arts

Rich in Art, Rich in Humanity

The arts are an integral piece of a Salem Academy education. The arts foster collaboration, creative thinking, and presentation skills.

Infusing art and STEM fields together, students use both the analytical and creative sides of their brains to advance interdisciplinary thinking and learning. This is the foundation of our unique STEAM educational approach.

In addition, the arts and math are closely related in that they both require spatial reasoning skills and the ability to recognize patterns. The arts, in its many and varied forms, can deepen compassion for one another and heighten self-confidence.
