Facilities

The Ainslie Arts Center integrates the innate human longing for self-expression with the most current technological expectations of a 21st-century arts center. Home to Episcopal's arts program, the 42,000-square-foot Ainslie Arts Center is a favorite place for performers, visual artists, and those who thrive on simply taking it all in. There is something for everyone here: an outlet, a canvas, a haven, an inspiration.
Episcopal’s art facilities rank among the finest for any high school in the mid-Atlantic region and include amenities and equipment rarely seen on a high school campus. Students have opportunities to learn about and manipulate state-of-the-art lighting, sound, and projection systems for student performances and for professional productions that come to campus. Those interested in recording techniques have unique opportunities to work in a professional, multi-track recording studio. Additionally, the musical instrument digital interface (MIDI) lab and class piano studio support theory and music classes.
