 The Music Program at SFP 

Prep’s Music department offers eleven performing ensembles for academic credit. Courses are also available in Music Theory, History, Electronic Orchestration (Finale), and Technology (Logic). Prep also offers a free Music Lesson program for academic credit, as well as outreach opportunities in the broader community.  The program is outstanding--one of the best in New York State at the high school level--and the Music curriculum offers students an opportunity to broaden their cultural background and to prepare for college-level work. The program is designed for three types of students:  

  • those who wish to fulfill their music requirement
  • those who have an interest in music and enjoy performing, and
  • those who expect to major in music or music education in college.

Among its achievements, the Chamber Orchestra earned a Gold Medal rating with the New York State Music Association. And in 2011  St. Francis Prep became the first-ever high school to receive a special Music Department accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.

And yet, until this most recent Phase of the Modernization program began in 2016, the school lacked dedicated rehearsal and instrument storage facilities!  All of that is changing as construction of a new, consolidated, comprehensive Music Department is currently underway.
