Fine Arts

Because we are truly committed to shaping the whole student, our music and fine arts programs are an integral part of student life at Calvary.  Parents and friends of CCS enjoy several musical performances throughout the year.

MUSIC EDUCATION

Kindergarten and elementary students in first and second grade may participate in our Kindermusik® program.  Students in grades three through six receive regular musical instruction as a part of their weekly curriculum.  Students in K3 through grade 3 may elect to study piano.  Students in grades 4-6 may receive  instruction in choir, flute, handchime choir, and piano.  Students in grades 7-12 may elect to study flute, guitar, handchime choir, and piano.  They may also elect and/or audition for choir, vocal ensemble, and group or private vocal instruction.

THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES

While Calvary does not have a dedicated Theatre Department, we have been blessed with gifted fine arts professionals and other talented individuals that are committed to teaching the dramatic arts to our students.  Because of this, we have been able to offer students the opportunity to participate in several theatrical productions over the years.

STATE COMPETITION

Membership in the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools (SCACS) provides Calvary students with the opportunity to participate annually in Elementary and High School Fine Arts Festivals.  Students compete in a variety of disciplines, including vocal solos and ensembles, piano, violin, woodwind, handchimes, photography, arts and crafts, speech, and much more.  Often times, students at Calvary advance to national competition!
