The Fine Arts Department at Cincinnati Country Day School provides a comprehensive arts program, Early Childhood through grade 12, to support the school’s commitment to superior education. Drama, music (vocal and instrumental), visual art, and literary arts enable students to reach their full potential and encourage them to experiment and to develop creativity. Student skill development is encouraged through the integration of production, aesthetics, history, and criticism. In addition, CCDS retains a close relationship with the Cleveland Museum of Art as well as other museums. Students from Kindergarten to 12th grade have explored the world's art collections through this 21st century medium.

Exposure to local, regional, and national artists through competitions; trips to museums, performances, and galleries; visiting artists and performances; and artists-in-residence programs all broaden students’ experiences within the arts.
