At Chelsea Academy, we aim to provide our students with an inspiring experience of the good, the true, and the beautiful.
Beauty is something objective, something tangible—and something our students can have a part in creating. So we encourage all Chelsea students to pursue the arts, and make available numerous avenues to do so:
In recognition of the rich and vibrant musical tradition of the Catholic Church, the Schola Cantorum learns and performs traditional sacred music, including parts of the Mass in Latin, as well as secular works. The Choir meets weekly and performs throughout the school year, including at weekly school Masses.
The Chelsea Schola is under the direction of Mrs. Annie DeJak.
The Chelsea Players
The Chelsea Players have garnered a reputation for putting on some of the finest high school theater productions in the greater Warren County area. Each Spring, Chelsea’s middle and upper school students each act in and produce a different, major theatrical production. Recent plays include Our Town and Pride & Prejudice. As a testimony to Chelsea’s commitment to the arts, the Spring Play has become a major event for the broader Chelsea community.
The Chelsea Players are under the direction of Mr. Chris Foeckler and Mrs. Holly McShurley.
Chelsea Academy seeks to awaken our students to beauty. In addition to learning how to recognize artistic beauty, students are instructed in the skills and knowledge necessary for producing beautiful works of art. All Middle School students take art once a week, and Upper School students must take at least one art class to meet the graduation requirement.
The Chelsea Fine Arts program is under the tutelage of Mr. Henry Wingate and Miss Angela Dugas.
