All lower school classes, beginning with PreK-4, receive 45 minute weekly music and art classes. During these classes, the elements of art and music are explored, and literacy is our aim. In addition to these things, we pray that students will use their musical and artistic skills as worship in response to God's revelation in their lives. Weekly chapels reinforce music learned through the week.
In the 6th Grade, students receive more training in music and art so that for future semesters/years of study, hey will be able to select the art of their choice. Students in 7th and 8th Grade get to choose between ensemble and art. Both of these classes are performance-focused.
For 7th-8th Graders who wish to explore additional opportunities, there is a zero period drama option. This class is performance-based in that the end result is a production. However, students are also introduced to basic elements of theatre.
Freshmen are required to take a Fine Art elective. This can be satisfied by choosing visual art, drama, or ensemble. Students in subsequent years may also continue their artistic experience by selecting these classes, and we love having a broad range of students working together.
