Combining academic disciplines with performance and worship arts experiences
Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Worship Arts
The arts are an essential part of our school. We have developed K-12 education tracks of arts-related core curriculum and electives. These include traditional art classes, music instruction, theater, speech, interrelated literature, poetry, and creative writing.
These education tracks complement opportunities to express creative gifts in choral groups, band, theater, speech, graphic arts, photography, painting, sculpture, pottery making, and the worship team.
In addition to fine and performing arts, we offer students several tracks in digital arts and technology. In today’s world, art and technology go hand in hand. Students have the opportunity to be trained in digital photography, graphic design, interactive media, and other disciplines. These can be expressed in student-developed publications, yearbooks, and other community endeavors.
The arts offer pathways for all students to deepen their understanding of God, participate creatively in His beautiful, redemptive work, and to worship and glorify Him.
Discovery & expression through the arts
Our arts classes and co-curricular activities are all designed to help students experience God in a new and fresh way.
