Where passion meets purpose, and where each artistic endeavor is a celebration of
the unique gifts within our community. Fine arts at CCS are an integral part of our elementary, MS and HS curriculum.
The Art of Education
Visual art instruction is an integral part of the curriculum beginning in kindergarten, and includes painting, drawing, ceramics, and sculpture. Music education includes teaching the basics of rhythm and group singing in elementary school to band, orchestra, and choir in middle and high schools. Theater opportunities also begin in elementary school and continue through 12th grade. Our music, theater, and visual arts programs have all been recognized at the local, and state levels, and the tradition of excellence continues to this day.

Visual Arts are a vital part of the Fine Arts education at Calvary Christian Schools. Through painting, drawing, crafts, ceramics, photography, videography, and more, our students learn the aesthetics of perspective, composition, color, balance, and structure while developing their gifts of imagination and creativity. Each of our students is encouraged to explore their artistic interests and develop them to their fullest extent.
Calvary Christian offers a thorough education in the Vocal Arts. Our students gain a systematic introduction to choral music that progresses over time to include the fundamentals of singing technique: warming up the voice, proper breath support, and vocal placement. Through choral singing, students learn to read music, to understand tempo, rhythm, and harmony. They are exposed to an array of musical styles from the classics to modern. They learn performance techniques, musical dynamics, and an appreciation for the colors and qualities of music written in the various keys and modes.
At Calvary Christian Schools we know how music contributes to our students’ success. Studying instrumental music and learning to play an instrument contribute to the overall cognitive development of students and build lifelong skills that will benefit them in many facets of their lives. It has been shown that students who study music have overall higher test scores in math and science. Learning to play an instrument develops a student’s aural skills, as well as their motor skills and dexterity. Ensemble playing develops teamwork, organization, leadership, and discipline.
