Welcome to the excitement of John Jay High School Performing Arts!

The John Jay Performing Arts Department is a place where students express their creativity and learn to live a full life. With over 550 students registered in our 14 courses, we offer the most extensive Performing Arts Curriculum anywhere in the tri-state area. There are two choral ensembles, three bands and two orchestras in the ensemble program and all of the select groups have been to major festivals and received the highest praise for their musical accomplishments. In addition, we offer a four-year sequence in Actor training and Music Theory and our recently updated MAC music lab brings us to the forefront of music technology. Our Co-curricular activities offer students seven performances throughout the year (see the Performing Arts Dates).
