Musical and aesthetic skills and sensibilities are important aspects of Christian worship and discipleship. From its inception, Arrowhead Christian Academy has integrated music and other arts education into our core curriculum. Most music classes and performing ensembles are required of all students based on their grade level. We want every ACA graduate to have experience and appreciation with all that is lovely and praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8) in the world of the arts.
Art classes for Grades K-4th set a foundation of creativity in our elementary grades; students in Grades 6th–12th also have access to a yearly art festival with a variety of entry categories, from textiles to watercolor.
Bands in a tiered series from 5th Grade on provide every student with the opportunity to learn a musical instrument in cooperation with an instrumental ensemble.
Choirs for every grade level (4 total) increase comfort and skill in using the singing voice, in an environment of practical camaraderie.
General music classes lay a experiential foundational for music literacy and enjoyment.
Private lessons round out the music education with individualized instruction for success in our instrumental ensembles and beyond!
Speech classes and drama round out an ACA education in Grades 11–12, but many students try their hand at public speech and drama in the Elementary Program and other festival opportunities.
Strings classes offer a quality alternative to the band program in Grades 5–8.
