The Academy’s related arts classes strive to develop our elementary students in areas beyond the academic curriculum and in some cases alert students to God-given talents that they can further develop. We have weekly classes in Spanish, library/media, physical education, music, and art. During these classes students develop functional skills while also learning related culture and history. Related arts classes also instill discipline, discernment, and a critical appreciation for what is beautiful and God-honoring. Our students enjoy their related arts classes, but the classes go far beyond mere entertainment or a break in the curriculum. Through related arts classes, our students are informed and more fully prepared for whatever work God has for them.
1 Corinthians 9:22 gives an example to follow: “I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” Related arts curriculum gives students tools to carry with them as they go forward to serve the Lord and reach their greatest potential.
