Arts & Athletics
Experiential learning opportunities are a crucial component of ASL’s overall program. Through our robust offerings in the arts and athletics, students engage in new ways of learning about—teamwork and self-expression; commitment and discipline; skills and character development; and competition and problem-solving.
In the arts, to learn by experience allows students to study not just how to create art, but why. Developing an artistic identity, to see oneself as an actor, a musician or a sculptor, allows student-artists new ways to look at the world and at their experiences.
Similarly, a competitive athletics program is essential to the physical, cognitive and social development of ASL’s student-athletes. What our students learn from their participation in competitive athletics provides them with transferable skills for the classroom, athletics and life after ASL.
To create and to play—both are essential ingredients of an ASL education.
