About Us

Clay High School has a long history of excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts.  The magnet program advances Clay’s ability to provide a world of outstanding opportunities, training, and experiences for talented, committed students who have a serious interest in the arts.

 Our visual and performing arts program works in tandem with the academic program and promotes stronger math skills and enhanced reading ability. Students can then take advantage of our strong AP offerings and numerous dual credit opportunities in core content areas.  Clay has more College Board approved and audited AP courses and academic dual credit courses than any other SBCSC school.

 The arts provide new challenges for students already considered successful. They encourage personal growth, foster social tolerance, motivate students to be more inventive and curious in their pursuits.

From Bach to rock, ballet to hip-hop, drawing to multimedia graphic design, and from Shakespeare to Tennessee Williams, Clay offers students a comprehensive, quality program in the fine arts.

 The program includes four strands, each with a deep, rich curriculum.

  • Music – four choirs, five bands, two orchestras, percussion ensemble, electronic music, piano, and guitar.
  • Theater – two levels of acting, technical theater, production, Shakespeare, film, and dramatic literature
  • Art – Painting, sculpture, printmaking, jewelry, in addition to traditional introductory, drawing, photography, and ceramics classes
  • Dance – several levels of Ballet/Modern, Jazz/Ethnic/Folk, Choreography, and a co-curricular dance performance company
