Distinctively Christian fine arts training
The Academy also offers opportunities for students to receive musical training and appreciation by way of classroom instruction, choirs, smaller choral groups, vocal and instrumental solos, and band and orchestra.
Participation in musical group activities provides opportunities to discover and use God-given talents which otherwise might be undiscovered and unappreciated. Most important, however, is the fact that musical instruction provides young people with a means of purposeful and lifelong service to Christ.
Music classes are provided for all elementary students. Vocal and instrumental music programs are available to students in grades 4-12.
