Visual & Performing Arts
The Visual and Performing Arts programs at Turlock Christian Schools are designed to acquaint, engender and develop an appreciation of art, music, and drama, and to provide a degree of performance proficiency that can be useful in today's culture and the Christian community. For some students this will result in a lifetime association with the arts from a layman's viewpoint; for others it will lead to a career in music, art or drama.
From elementary school through high school, students have the opportunity to perform in dramatic and music productions, receive a general music education, and explore their God-given creative talents in these areas. The elementary program provides for once weekly music instruction and, for fourth through sixth grades, semi-private instruction in instrumental music and an opportunity to participate in band. Twice yearly arts programs are presented, one at Christmas and one in the spring. These programs generally include a performance by the band, and a Christmas musical with drama included.
In the high school, courses are offered in drama, choral music, instrumental music, art, photography and graphic arts. High school students have the opportunity to participate in jazz band, marching band, and color guard. All of our junior high and high school programs operate at the highest levels, are award-winning and receive top marks in competition with surrounding public and private schools.
