Fine Arts

Our aim is to instruct and train young men and women in the visual and performing arts, helping them to acquire what God has called them to achieve. Through music, drama, art, photography, media and worship arts – and many other artistic applications – we will endeavor to promote spiritual growth and community service, assisting students in discovering the talents and gifts that the Lord has given them to use to build up others.

Her gifts for music and productions have blessed our school community greatly. Mrs. Edall also works with our Admission Director, Debbie Fallon, serving our international students as a translator and cultural coach.
