Junior Creighton Braun took first place in photography at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts this past weekend for his piece entitled Energy.
At JSerra Catholic High School, we encourage students to explore their creative sides by providing them with ample opportunities to participate in just about every aspect of the Performing or Visual Arts — whether it's in front of or behind a camera, canvas, or curtain. Students may concentrate on the Arts through the Arts Magnet Program or take Arts classes that appeal to them; they may even satiate their creative needs by participating in such activities as our improvisational comedy group, theatre productions, choir, after-school rock band, and more.
Students are welcome to engage with more than one activity; in fact, many of our students balance their participation in the Arts with rigorous AP and honors academics, Magnet Programs, and/or Athletics.
Last night JSerra students were celebrated at the 48th Annual Spirit of the MACY Awards. Founded in 1969, the awards are dedicated to encouraging, recognizing and rewarding achievement and excellence in high school musical theatre. Congratulations to the following students for their spring production of Les Miserables . . .
