Our Saints are talented in so many areas!
Creative expression is an important component of a well-rounded academic career. NDP students are encouraged to explore the arts and are given many opportunities to display their work. The Fine Arts Department at NDP seeks to maximize the creative potential in each student by providing events for students to accept the challenge and try new artistic avenues. Art students enhance their individual creativity while collaborating and supporting each other. Through NDP's many arts programs students find their niche and discover hidden talents.
To show our commitment to the arts, we opened the St. Catherine of Bologna Performing Arts Center in April 2021. The 20,000 square-foot building houses all of our performing and visual arts classes. We currently offer Drama, Choir, Guitar Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Dance, Painting, Drawing, Pottery, and Digital Video Production.
In keeping with the Catholic tradition of forming humble servants to foster God's people, our performing and visual arts students find opportunities each year, to share their talents with those in need. Our dancers perform for terminally ill children at Phoenix Children's Hospital, the Tri M Music Honor Society holds a benefit concert each year to raise money for Rosie's House, an organization that provides free music lessons and instruments to children from low-income families.
