The Fine Arts Department
As educators at Salem County Christian Academy it is always our goal to teach the whole student. Music is so much a part of our expression of emotion and worship, and is so ingrained in our society that we believe any education must include at the very least an elementary understanding of music’s history, relevance and effect on each individual’s experience. From the earliest of days, great men of the faith like David, as a shepherd and a king, utilized music in love and worship of the one true and living God. Much of what David wrote (the Psalms) has become the hymns and spiritual songs we listen to and sing today. Your child will find their expression in music! Will that expression be informed by a biblical worldview or by the world itself?
It is our prayer that each child will learn and experience the joy of music, to perform it with excellence and to edify the body of Christ and ultimately, to glorify their Creator. That is the aim of the SCC Academy Music program. It is the desire of the Academy to help each child search out and perfect any gift endowed to them by their Creator, whether that be vocal or instrumental. This is accomplished through music classes, choir, band, private and group lessons, and special programs. We also participate in Academy-sponsored programs and Fine Arts competitions throughout the year.
Elementary and middle school students participate in weekly art classes that focus on cultivating a love of art. High school students are able to pursue and deepen their passion for art by signing up for an Art Elective. Visit our Art Director’s Page.
We have lots of students who are GREAT actors, but they really shine on stage! Middle and High School students are able to participate in Christmas and Spring Drama productions each year. The age of eligibility for this extracurricular activity varies from year to year based on the production that is chosen. Visit our Drama Director’s Page.
