Fine Arts Overview

Mission

“The mission of the Fine Arts Department at Calvary Christian High School is to provide a challenging college preparatory fine arts education that inspires and equips students to become lifelong practitioners and patrons of the arts, rooted in a Christian worldview.”
 

In the Classromm

Calvary students have many courses to choose from in fine arts including Visual Arts, Marching / Concert Band, Drama, Choir, Dance, Worship, Worship Through ASL, Yearbook, Creative Writing, Speech, and Humanities. Additionally, our fine arts faculty offers a wealth of experience to our students who are interested in pursuing a major or minor in the arts in college. With their diverse backgrounds, they are able to assist our students not only in the audition and portfolio process, but also in understanding the differences in the educational setting, since their own degrees vary from small private colleges (both Christian and non-Christian) to a large State University and a Music Conservatory


Outside the Classroom

Students are given opportunities to be a part of the Warrior Marching Band, Calvary Choir, our Fall Play and Spring Musical, Christmas Concert, the Worship Team that serves in Chapel every week, and our annual Celebration of the Arts event. The best of our Visual Art students’ work is displayed in our Ruach Gallery throughout the year. Leading scholars and artists from distinguished universities across the United States share with students about their craft and scholarship in faith and the arts through our Guest Artist Series.

Our students have the opportunity to participate in several festivals and competitions such as FBA Assessments and FMBC Competitions, the ACSI Art, Concert Band, Choral and Creative Writing Festivals, All State (Band and Vocal) and the ITS District Competition just to name a few. The International Thespian Society (ITS), Film Society, and Creative Writing Club are three extra-curricular clubs that encourage our students to think critically about the arts from a Christian worldview


In the Community

Through special concerts at partner schools and adult senior living facilities, middle school summer camps and featuring the work of middle school art students in North Pinellas County by hosting the NPCMSAF Art Exhibit and Reception, we serve our local community through the arts.
