Creativity is a God-given gift, and the Fine Arts Department offers a place to develop talents in the visual and performing arts with a career emphasis.  In short, we are preparing Christians to make their innovative mark on the world through fine arts.

Features of the program:

  1. Rigorous core curriculum.  Curriculum path includes the equivalent of 5 years of fine arts (including performance-based credits and academic credits).  Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher in arts curriculum courses.
  2. Participation in at least one fall drama or spring musical.
  3. Internship of 40-hours, compiled in a portfolio for review.
  4. Independent research project, guided by a faculty mentor, and including field visits to museums or galleries.
  5. Book study with EAC cohort.
  6. Capstone Project of student work, presented in a portfolio as a capstone project, to be showcased in a public exhibition or performance.

Successful Emerging Artist Curriculum candidates will, upon completion, receive commendation on diplomas and on transcripts, as well as recognition at Concordia Academy’s Honors Convocation.
