The Arts: Professional Development Day

Cushing Academy is home to one of the most highly respected Visual and Performing Arts programs in secondary school education. Our departments offer classes in a variety of disciplines to suit the interests and meet the needs of students at every level. Visual Arts options include silversmithing, ceramics, painting, drawing, architectural design, photography, and stained glass. Performing Arts courses include dance, theatre, jazz ensemble, chamber music, and chorus.
We are excited to welcome teachers from junior boarding and day schools throughout the northeast for a fun-filled day of professional development. Guests will participate in a workshop taught by our talented faculty and learn more about the Cushing Academy experience.
