As part of our regular course of studies, students participate weekly in music class and in art class. Along with having them learn about the beauty of music and art, we believe enhancing these sides of our students improves their overall education and their individual academic learning.
Our middle school students participate in one quarter of woodworking with a local woodworker.
To celebrate National Poetry Month in April, our Academy hosts a an annual event for students and classes to showcase their ability to recite a memorized piece of poetry. Coffee and refreshments are served for our parents and audience members.
MUSIC AND ARTS
We present a yearly art show that highlights some of the best work from each student. This is often in conjunction with the Poetry Cafe. Parents and guests may bid to purchase pieces of artwork.
In 2020 we were invited to have a month-long show of art work done by our students at the Montrose Public Library.
The entire school population participates in presenting a musical play to celebrate the birth of our Lord. This gives every student experience reciting, singing, and dancing on stage.
