Music Program


Elk County Catholic School System hosts a number of excellent music programs at the elementary, middle and high school levels.

Studies continually show that being involved in music in school has a positive impact on students’ academic performance. The national average for involvement in music is 8%. However, ECCSS boasts an 18% student participation rate in our system. What a powerful statement this is showing the success of our overall music program and the dedication of our instructors and our volunteers.
