ABOUT

The mission of the KCA Fine Arts Department is to provide a Christ-centered curriculum that inspires, equips and empowers students to discover, develop and demonstrate their God-given talents while establishing a life-long appreciation for the arts. Fine arts programs include visual and performing arts with a wide range of opportunities for participation. Current program offerings include art, drama, choir, and band. Our students are challenged to acknowledge the responsibility to use their talents to serve God and others. The King's Christian Academy believes that arts are essential to a well-rounded education. It provides the individual with a sense of confidence through their accomplishments. The Fine Arts Department is committed to providing students with instruction in each discipline as well as performance and exhibition opportunities.
