The Arts at TKA
We believe that God is the ultimate creator and that we are created in His image. As such, we each are a creator–perhaps a painter, a poet, a musician, a scientist, etc. The King’s Academy offers opportunities for each student to discover the creator within and engage their talents in fine arts, language, athletics, and other disciplines.
TKA Fine Arts Courses
Art, Advanced Art I, II, III (results in portfolio), Choir and Orchestra. For complete course descriptions please see The King’s Academy High School Course Descriptions.
Spring Drama auditions are held each fall. Rehearsals begin promptly after auditions and continue through the spring. The drama season culminates with outstanding performances enjoyed by enthused audiences in April.
