The Pegasus arts program gives students the opportunity to explore their artistic talents, whether through the visual arts, music, or theater.
Pegasus has a renown arts program that provides opportunities for students to discover their inner creative talents. Lower School students participate in visual arts, and music and movement rotation classes. Younger students are introduced to different types of materials, media and techniques while the older students expand upon their passions and talents as they improve their confidence. Pre-K through fifth graders perform in both the Winter Concert and Spring Shows.
In the Middle School, students have the option to choose arts electives. A variety of arts courses are available, including fine art, digital art, music, dance and theater. There is a special Middle School Theaer Arts performance in the winter and another in the spring.
