Our Fine Arts Department exists to glorify God by developing the talent he has graciously given each and every student. Some students have “behind the scenes talent” and others “front and center.” Our students know that it takes both types of talent to create a God-honoring show. Students enjoy instruction from a biblical worldview with an emphasis on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
High School drama presentations include opportunities to refine talents not only in acting but also in stage management, lighting and sound, costumes, set construction and other areas of the production.
Pre-K – 7th grade students also enjoy participation in our performing arts department. In addition to bi-weekly instruction in music class they present two productions each year. Productions vary but can include choral music performances, plays, skits, and live instrumentals.
Students learn to use their musical gifts to God's glory as members of CCA's Worship Team. Utilizing a variety of musical skills, this student-powered team serves by leading CCA's student body in contemporary worship music during weekly chapel services. The goal is to help students focus on Christ and His love, and open their hearts to the Bible lesson. A high school team leads older students, while a team comprised of middle school students serves in elementary chapel.
Some of CCA's Worship Team members also serve in a traveling musical ensemble, One Name. This team travels to local churches, providing worship music and introducing area congregations to Cornerstone. One Name's goal is to give God glory and introduce the family of Christ to CCA's unique educational experience.
High School students may choose yearbook as an elective. They will become familiar with different types of software, layout and design, attention to detail and the necessity of meeting deadlines. Along with the class advisor they will plan, create and ultimately publish the school yearbook. This elective requires a yearlong commitment.
