Performing Arts

Performing Arts courses challenge students to open their minds to the world of theater while inspiring confidence and creating a community of support. Students have the opportunity to take courses related to music and performance, such as Show Choir, Music Theory, Jazz Band, Concert Choir, Public Speaking, Concert Band, Orchestra, and Presentation and Performance. Most of the courses offered come with the experience of performing on stage for parents and friends. Our experienced faculty is dedicated to teaching students how to thrive and learn through music and performance. Additionally, students can participate in extracurricular activities like the Fall Play, Spring Musical and The Academy Chorale.
 

Visual Arts

In the Visual Arts courses, students learn about new technologies and how to create on multiple platforms with imagination and originality. Under the watchful eye and tutelage of our accomplished faculty, students may explore many creative avenues, learn about the newest design programs, and work three-dimensionally with hands-on projects. With courses ranging from graphic design and yearbook to jewelry making and studio art, there are numerous ways students may find creative outlets and improve and experiment with their God-given talents.

    Fall Play: Blithe Spirit

    Blithe Spirit is set at the house of writer, Charles Condomine, and his wife, Ruth. One evening, Charles invites local eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a seance at his house. He asks along his friends, Dr. and Mrs. Bradman, intending to gather character inspiration from Madame Arcati for his latest book. Despite initially thinking the seance has been a failure, it soon becomes clear that Madame Arcati has unwittingly brought back Charles’ first wife, Elvira, to haunt him. Once in his house, Elvira is unable to leave and, as she cannot be seen or heard by Ruth, she causes all kinds of mischievous trouble between the married couple. When Elvira unwittingly causes Ruth’s death in her attempts to bring Charles over to be with her, Charles becomes haunted by both of his now-deceased wives. Frustrated by their odd situation, the threesome call on Madame Arcati once more to send Elvira and Ruth back to the other side. Intensely funny and character-driven, Blithe Spirit combines farce, emotion, and wit to great effect.
