Our passion is for music to be a worship-fueled celebration to our God. We want to equip students with inspiration and knowledge to use their gifts for His glory.
Through musical theatre, instrumental music, choir, worship band, and daily music classes,
there is an avenue for every student.
PreK ages 3 and up have weekly music classes and participate in chapels. They have a special recognition in May.
K-4th grades have weekly classes with Mrs. Churchwell and prepare for various performances and chapels throughout the year.
In addition to weekly music classes, 5th grade produces a full musical most years, providing opportunities for solos, acting, and technical theatre training.
This auditioned choir of 3rd thru 8th graders will rehearse once a week after school with Mrs. Smith to prepare for multiple performance opportunities throughout the year.
Our Elementary and Upper Campus students are encouraged to participate in
weekly chapels and small groups led by faculty, staff, and community leaders.
This semester elective is designed for high school students to explore the fundamentals of the performing arts. Exploring everything from beginning acting to scenic design to lighting and sound technology to assisting in mainstage performances, students will not only gain an understanding of the foundations of theater, but also an appreciation for the role that the creative process plays in the bigger picture.
