Fine Arts Overview

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 classroom
Calvary students have many courses to choose from in fine arts including Visual Arts, Digital Art, Marching/Concert Band, Drama, Choir, Dance, Color Guard, Worship, Yearbook, and Creative Writing. 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 Christian Colleges to large State Universities 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. Our students have the opportunity to participate in several festivals and competitions such as FBA and FVA Assessments, FMBC and FFCC Competitions, the International Thespian Society, Scholastic Art Competition,  and the Dance Revolution Conference just to name a few.

In the community
Through special concerts and workshops at partner schools, adult senior living facilities, church events and summer camps, we serve our local community through the arts.

Director of Fine Arts

Michael Martell

My name is Michael Martell and it is my honor to serve as the Director of Fine Arts and Band Director at Calvary Christian High School.  I have been involved with Christian education both as a student and as a teacher for as long as I can remember and I am passionate about Christian education because of the impact it has had on my life.  I have served at Calvary since the 2011-2012 school year.  Prior to my time at Calvary, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Music Education degree from Clearwater Christian College and in 2017 I earned my Master of Music in Music Education from the University of Florida.  It is my joy to lead and serve alongside our talented fine arts faculty as we seek to provide students with a college preparatory fine arts education rooted in a Christian worldview.
