Arts

The fine arts program at GCA allows students to explore the fundamental elements of visual and performing arts. We offer a variety of electives including art, band, choir, dramatic arts, and worship arts. Many of these electives are offered on the lower, middle, and upper school levels so that a child may begin to grow and develop their God-given gifts and talents as young as kindergarten.

For an in-depth list of electives and opportunities for students please see the division specific pages.

Annual Night of the Arts

The annual Night of the Arts at Grace Christian Academy is an evening devoted to celebration of the outstanding fine arts programs at Grace Christian Academy.  As students perform in the areas of theater, music, and band, families also enjoy a school-wide display of artwork, photography, digital design, sculpture, and more.

Due to the distance learning format, the 2020 Night of the Arts was held as a virtual celebration and artwork evaluated and awarded by an independent judge.  Enjoy this virtual celebration of the fine arts at GCA!
