Performing Arts


At Holy Cross Catholic Schools we offer a variety of different art programs, including art classes in each school, band, drama, music, and specialty art programs.

We offer various music and theatre options for your child to participate in, in order to promote their creativity! In addition to the visual art opportunities presented in our school, students also have the chance to participate in system-wide art initiatives and programs through Holy Cross Catholic Schools and its community partners. 


Our school offers a variety of musical outlets for student exploration. Some of these musical expressions include band, children’s choirs, music theory classes, school show choirs, and partnerships with the Canton Symphony which allows our students to attend the Young Peoples Concert Series. Students are also encouraged to schools to play in school and parish music ministries. In addition, since SS. Philip and James is a Holy Cross Catholic School, students in grades 4-8, can participate in the Holy Cross Catholic Schools Show Choir.


SS. Philip and James students participate in The Drama Club of Holy Cross Catholic Schools which provides students with multiple opportunities for theatrical expression including Fall After-School Drama Club, Spring Musical Workshop on Saturdays and Summer Drama Camp. Students in these programs are immersed into the world of drama, learning about character creation, storytelling, musical theatre-style singing, costume and prop creation and working together as a performing ensemble! Past performances include "Broadway Rocks!," "Sleeping Beauty Kids," "Spring into Drama," and "There's No Place Like Oz."
