Arts

FCA offers art classes throughout a student’s school carreer from Kindergarten through 12th grade. AP Art is offered to high school students. Students in grades K-6 have art every week, and students in grades 7 and 8 take art for one quarter each year. Our mission is to provide art students an opportunity to express individuality through the creation of artwork. We endeavor to serve others by using our artistic talent and creative knowledge. Students will be introduced to a wide variety of hands-on long and short term projects using both 2-D and 3-D processes, such as: Drawing, Ceramics, Printmaking, Painting, Computer Graphics and Sculpture. Projects include the Cumberland County Fair, stage and set designs for the Christmas program, preparations for the Annual Art Jubilee, community artist opportunities, and so much more! We partake in unique art experiences that stimulate minds through hands-on activities.

Band

FCA’s band program exists to help develop the musical gifts God has entrusted students, as well as teach them how to use those gifts to glorify God with excellence. FCA offers 3 levels of band classes which meet every day during the instructional day: 5th grade beginning band, intermediate band, and concert band (auditioned). All bands perform a Christmas and spring concert. Instrumentalists with at least two years of playing experience may participate in FCA Patriot Pep Band during basketball season. Students in concert band have the opportunity to compete as individuals for All-District Band and UNCP Honor Band. Our concert band also participates as a whole in the ACSI Fine Arts Festival and competes in the Music In The Parks Festival at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, as well as community events such as the Christmas parade and playing the national anthem at a hockey game. We are looking forward to another great year of growth in our band program!

Choir

The goal of our choir is to teach students the love of music and to help students use their gifts to His glory. Choir is offered to middle and high school and performs two concerts per year. Members of the choir are also on our praise team as they lead their fellow students in worship during chapel.

Drama

Drama students are given the freedom to try new forms of theatrical expression. Our past performances range from well-known stage plays with mature subject matter to expression through dance to student produced and directed works to children’s plays, to include: Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music, Headache: A Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre, and The Wizard of Oz, to name just a sampling. We are excited to offer a wide range of theatrical diversity and welcome all skill levels and degrees of experience.
