The creative arts are essential to a well-rounded education at a preparatory high school. The arts not only stimulate thought, creativity, and an appreciation of beauty, but also help students to see things differently, experience life more fully, and express themselves more completely. Concordia Academy has a long and rich history of fine arts. Award-winning programs in music, theater, visual arts, and dance are fundamental to the Concordia experience. CA is committed to honoring God and blessing students through excellence in the arts.
Concordia Academy art students participated in the 2012 “Artistic Discovery” sponsored by the United States Congress. The office of Congresswoman Betty McCollum from Minnesota’s 4th District chose a drawing by Junior Clare Beardsley as the 3rd place winner in this year’s competition. Clare’s work will hang in Representative McCollum’s St. Paul office over the next year and Clare also received a free summer art course at the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul.
