Our passion is for music to be a worshiped-fueled celebration to our God. We want to equip students with inspiration and knowledge to use their gifts to His glory. 

Through musical theatre, instrumental music, choir, worship band, and daily music classes,

there is an avenue for every student.


PreK ages 3 and up have weekly music classes and participate in chapels. They have a special recognition in May.


K-4th grades have weekly classes with Mrs. Churchwell and preparing for various performances and chapel throughout the year. 


In addition to weekly music classes, 5th grade produces a full musical most years in mid-Spring providing opportunities for solos, acting, and technical theatre training.

Honor Choir

This auditioned choir of 3rd thru 6th graders will rehearse once a week after school with Mrs. Churchwell to prepare for multiple performance opportunities through the year.



Our Elementary and Upper Campus students are encouraged to participate in 

weekly chapels and small groups led by faculty, staff, and community leaders.




Middle School music classes will conquer music theory, basic vocal and instrumental techniques, composer studies, media and tech training, and digital music.

6th and 7th grade will have one quarter (9 weeks) of music. 8th grade will have a full semester.
