Welcome to the Arts at Bishop Hendricken!

Mr. Richard Sylvia, Director of Arts  

Bishop Hendricken High School is proud to be a leader in Arts Education in the state of Rhode Island. At a time when many schools are cutting programs in the Arts, we are rapidly expanding our staff, facilities, and programs. We offer creative experiences and extraordinary events that feature student artists of all abilities. Our comprehensive program offers creative opportunities in DRAMA, TECHNICAL THEATER, MEDIA ARTS, INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC, VOCAL MUSIC and VISUAL ARTS within our state-of-the-art 6.2 million dollar center for the Arts and Technology. We are one of very few schools inthe nation to boast an honors Arts Academy Program that allows many of our talented student artists to study their craft for the entirety of their career at Bishop Hendricken. Between our Arts Academy, elective course opportunities, and extracurricular groups, about 50% of our student body is actively involved in one or more arts programs each school year. See why everyone is talking about The Arts at Bishop Hendricken High School!
