Since its founding in 1925, Solebury School has been known for its strong arts program. Located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a nationally recognized center for artists and artistic expression, Solebury offers students many opportunities to explore their aesthetic sense and develop their skills as artists.
Many among Solebury’s art faculty are and have been professional artists, and countless Solebury graduates have gone on to art schools and to careers in theater, film, television, fine arts, music, and art education.
The study and participation in the Arts is an important and integral part of a well-rounded education. Our students are required to take six credits in either visual or performing arts for graduation. Most students take as many art classes as their schedule will allow.
Arts Festival Week
Solebury School celebrates the Arts with our weeklong Arts Festival every year. The opening night art show and cabaret night bring the community together in a celebration of both performing and visual arts. Throughout the week, special art activities are scheduled for students and faculty. Students also enjoy performances or presentations by well known artists. Professional artists, musicians, and performers are invited to offer workshops in their crafts. This celebration of the Arts is a memorable week for all students to enjoy.
Our very popular "Coffeehouse" concerts take place three times during the year. In a relaxed, fun atmosphere, students and faculty sing, play music, act, recite poetry, or read passages from their favorite literary works.
