Students will spend a
minimum of one course period a day concentrating on their arts
interest.  The courses that students take during the school day are
complemented by our after school academic offerings in the arts such as
Elements of Dance and Movement and Guitar Ensemble.  Arts students also benefit from a wide array of clubs and activities
geared toward the arts.  These events and activities include Winter and
Spring Concerts, Cabaret Nights throughout the year, Spring Musical,
Shakespeare Festival, Photography Club, Art Club, TV Studio, Dance Team,
Jazz Band, Field Band, and Show Band.  New activities are added each
year based on student interest.

Students are also given the opportunity to participate in local
competitions and events such as the DeSales Shakespeare Competition, the
Congressional Art Competition, Camden County Arts Festival, and
others.  Our students have regularly taken home top honors in these
events because of their experience in the arts at CCHS.

performance and production, television, and print media.  They bring
