Immaculata students have a variety of opportunities to participate in the arts. We have an award-winning band and choir, produce an annual student musical, participate in local and regional visual art shows, and more.
Students incorporate their artistic talents in our weekly Mass, Friday Morning Prayer, and cultural celebrations through musical performance, acting, and dance.

Community Engagement & Recognition
Student art pieces are selected annually for the State Fair Fine Arts Competition, and have received as high as 5th place in all of North Carolina.
Our bands and choirs hold concerts twice annually, travel to the Trinity School of Durham & Chapel Hill music clinics to practice and perform with students from other local schools, and compete (and place highly) at the Kings Dominion Festival of Music each year. As well, select band students participate in the annual North Carolina Music Educators Association (NCMEA) Honor Ensemble and our choir enters in the MIX 101.5 Christmas Choir Competition, having won second place and thus invited to perform at the WRAL staff Christmas Celebration.
Our arts program would not be possible without the support of Immaculata Principal and NCMEA Honor Administrator, Dana Corcoran - awarded for her advocacy of the arts in education through school staffing, programming, and funding.
