St. Mary's County Public Schools students enjoy the opportunity to take part in the Fine Arts from grades K-12. We offer many opportunities for students to enrich their Arts experience by offering All-County and Tri-County Honor music ensembles and theatre festivals, as well as art exhibitions at the county level. Our students also go on to represent St. Mary's County Public Schools at the regional and state levels. Finally, now in its second year, students at the high school level may also apply to be accepted into the Academy of Visual and Performing Arts (AVPA). AVPA offers a highly differentiated curriculum for our strongly abled and arts-centered students who plan on pursing a career in the Arts. You can follow the Fine Arts Department on Twitter at @SMCPS_FineArts to keep up with all of the wonderful talents of the students of St. Mary's County Public Schools.
