The Fine Arts program at Atlanta Classical Academy provides students with an opportunity to explore, develop and be challenged in their pursuit to “learn the true, do the good, and love the beautiful.” Our purpose is to encourage and facilitate a space where students can create beauty in a variety of different media including the visual arts, theatrical arts, musical arts and dance.
The overarching program provides a continuum that not only exposes students to the arts, but provides avenues for them to grow and mature their skills and talents. Students are afforded opportunities to explore, develop, and be challenged by taking three types of classes: mandatory Curriculum (C), optional Electives (E), and optional Applied (A) classes. The mandatory Curriculum (C) and optional Elective (E) classes are taught during the academic school day, while the Applied (A) classes are offered as part of our after-school ne arts programming.
At the explore level, our K-6 Curriculum (C) and Applied (A) classes
create a solid foundation in the arts. At this beginner stage, students will have the opportunity to discover and investigate the arts, leading to a lifetime of appreciation and enjoyment.
At the develop level, our 7th and 8th Grade Curriculum (C), Elective (E) and Applied (A) classes will further challenge students in their knowledge and techniques. This intermediate stage will also provide a way to teach the students about commitment and perseverance.
At the challenge level, our Elective (E) and Applied (A) classes will mold students who exhibit the passion, desire and aptitude to take their craft to the highest point possible. To be accepted into this advanced stage, students must be recommended or submit an application that may also be accompanied by an interview or audition.
Applied Arts Courses
Our applied courses are offered outside of the normal school day. These classes are designed to give technical instruction in a specific area.
