Arts - High School


Visual & Performing Arts

A well-rounded education involves exposure and opportunities in the areas of fine and performing arts.

As God is the author of creativity and beauty, students at TCCS discover and express their God-given talents in the areas of music, drama, art, and digital media.

Personal expression, creative thinking, imaginative communication, and intellectual curiosity are all outcomes leading students to experience a greater appreciation of God’s majestic creation.



TCCS offers fun and interactive drama courses as well as a full scale Spring Musical production for grades 7 - 12. These programs help students build personal confidence as they learn to work together as a cast, teaching them to become creative and flexible problem solvers as well as supportive team members.

Students will:

  • Gain, improve, and polish beginning and intermediate acting skills 
  • Analyze and perform monologues and plays
  • Learn set design, sound, and technology production
  • Study theater history and appreciation 
  • High School classes will also produce a Fall Play, participate in the Christmas Celebration, and assist with the annual Spring Musical production

Multi-Media & Digital Arts

These courses will prepare students to effectively use digital media to communicate and influence the current culture. By creating projects, students develop strong critical thinking and organizational skills.
