The Arts At Metro
Knowing that art and creativity encourage critical thinking skills and problem-solving capabilities, Metro is committed to providing a rich and varied collection of Fine Arts course offerings so that each student may identify and develop their creative niche.
Just as students are uniquely and wonderfully created in the image of God, so are each of their artistic gifts. The arts curriculum is intentionally designed to balance the creative process with an integrated approach masterfully creating a product of self-expression and analytical thought. No matter where their talents may be focused, Metro’s students routinely achieve at high levels in the areas of art, theatre, and instrumental music.
At Metro, we have a fantastic team of Christian educators that inspires, encourages, and challenges our students to utilize their talents, hone their skills, and excel in their chosen art in a way that honors the Lord with excellence.
Metro Christian Academy has a long and proud tradition of leading the way in creativity and excellence in theatrical programming, providing our students with an inspired and multidisciplinary art form. Students enrolled in the Theatre Arts program are exposed to the study of movement, voice, acting, characterization, improvisation, theatrical production, and dramatic and literary genres. One of the primary goals of Theatre Arts is the intentional preparation of students for future collegiate education and successful careers on the stage. All students learn good work habits and time management skills through collaborative learning experiences.

Our award-winning visual and digital arts department is an active and dynamic part of Fine Arts at Metro Christian Academy. Students are challenged to become painters, photographers of the world, artisans of ceramic vessels, and designers of the 3-dimensional landscape.
Because children are created in the image of a creative God, Metro’s art curriculum focuses on developing each student’s innate creativity, technical proficiency, and knowledge of various media and techniques. Relying upon their perceptions of the environment, students cultivate and create artwork through increased visual awareness and sensitivity to surroundings, memories, and imagination.
Additionally, multiple opportunities are provided to promote a lifelong relationship with the arts and encourage a thoughtful and aesthetic response to God, Himself, and His purpose. Student artwork is showcased in numerous art shows and regional competitions annually, including our own “A Night With The Arts” during the fall semester and an all-school art show each spring.
The self-confidence and self-assurance learned in the studios and art rooms transfer into academic classrooms where students are bolder and understand academic disciplines, all while modeling a pursuit of excellence in Christ.
Instrumental Musical Arts
The Musical Arts Department enriches the Metro community with a vibrant and healthy artistic culture by developing young musicians while pursuing excellence and sharpening the musical gifts bestowed by Him. Teachers approach music not only as a discipline in Performing Arts but also as an expression of praise.
From beginning classes in sixth grade to our accomplished upper school Jazz Band, Metro’s musical programs offer multiple opportunities for students of all skill levels to explore and advance on the wind, brass, or percussion instruments. Whether students are interested in the band, musicals, choir, or praise and worship, the school’s musical arts programs endeavor to provide diverse offerings of musical exposure for each student.
Performing numerous times a year, both on and off campus, and participating in regional festivals and honors ensembles, the Band Program provides students with a broad range of experiences as they cultivate their musical gifts to impact the culture for Christ.
