Arts - High School


Performing & Visual 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 area 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.


Drama 2 1Drama I i& II ntroduces students to the basics of drama and helps students to develop an appreciation of dramatic literature and the dramatic profession through reading scripts and reading and writing projects. A variety of drama/theatre activities will provide students an arena to improve and polish their acting skills. Students also gain an appreciation for the history of theater and acting. At the end of each semester, Drama students display their work and talent in small scale productions.



Multi-Media Arts

This course covers studies in idea creation, movie planning, storyboarding, script/screenplay writing, production planning, camera fundamentals and techniques, shot composition, lighting, audio recording, non-linear editing and distribution. The new technologies of electronic communication are relegating old and freed media such as pamphlets, platforms and periodicals to a corner of the public platform.This course will prepare students to effectively use digital media to communicate with and influence the current culture. By creating projects, critical thinking and organizational skills will be developed.



Students in this course learn and perform beginning, intermediate and some advanced levels of choral literature from selected musical genres and eras. Students learn basic music theory and performance, as well as exploring music history and creating an environment of music appreciation from diverse cultures and backgrounds. The course is divided into one semester of theory and one semester of music history / appreciation. Both semesters include 2 -3 performances with one performance including costuming and choreography.

Performing at various venues in and outside the school community during the school year provide our students the opportunity to glorify God and is truly a great way to live out the school’s mission and vision.

In addition, singers will participate in the annual ACSI Musicale Choral Festival in Pasadena, California, learning the required pieces for the Mass Choir and individual pieces for adjudication.


GuitarLearning and mastering classical or acoustic guitar inspires students to worship the Lord. Introductory and advanced classes introduce students to the world of reading guitar music.

The guitar 1 course takes the student who knows very little about music and who doesn't know how to play the guitar to become a guitarist who can perform in a variety of styles and play music in a worship setting.

Emphasis is placed on building skills and techniques. The student will learn a great deal of music theory and be exposed to a variety of guitar styles. Students must provide their own acoustic guitar (steel string or classical).
