Choir, Orchestra, and Art

San Jacinto Christian Academy endeavors to educate the whole child. We believe that fine arts instruction plays a vital role in the development of the whole child. To this end, San Jacinto Christian Academy offers music and art to all elementary students.

Beginning in the fourth grade, elementary,  middle school, and high school  students are given the opportunity to choose an activity in which to participate. These students may choose choir, art, or orchestra.

We desire that our students be able to recognize the contributions of literature, art, and music in our society from a Christian perspective.
