Creative and Performing Arts at Calvin
Calvin recognizes the place of the arts in the development of the whole child as a Biblical mandate. God is the Creator. We are His image bearers called to reflect His beauty, grace and love. Through the musical, performing and visual arts, Calvin is committed to fully developing the creative gifts of God's children in order to glorify him through unique avenues of self-expression and praise which affirm and celebrate each child.
We see the Arts as a reflection of the creative beauty of our God.
Beginning in kindergarten, all elementary school students attend music class twice a week. In addition to learning music theory and information about types of music and famous composers, students learn songs for two major performances. Visual art instruction takes place in the classroom and is integrated throughout the curriculum.
In addition to a wide variety of arts opportunities in the curriculum, Calvin offers several options in the co-curricular junior high and high school program as well. These programs present another avenue to develop the skills, discipline and character that are consistent with a Biblical world and life view.
