Fine Arts at ACS

The ACS Fine Arts Department is housed in the Charles B. Whitney Fine Arts Center. This center, named for one of our school founders, houses spacious band and choral suites as well as practice rooms and a large visual arts instruction room.

Fourth through twelfth grade students may participate in the Augusta Christian School band program with three levels of band instruction. All bands perform in a variety of local, regional and state festivals and competitions as well as concerts throughout the year.

Our fourth - twelfth grade choral program includes two different levels of performance and competition groups: an elementary chorus and a middle/high school chorus. Choral groups consistently rate superior at competitions and festivals. The choral and drama departments perform a Broadway musical each year. Region and state titles have been won in past years in boy's and girl's solo, trio, quartet, and piano. The choral program is also open to Homeschool students in the CSRA.

Visual art instruction classes are given to all students in grades 1-5. Middle school and senior high art and ceramic classes are offered as an elective. Art work by students is displayed throughout the campus.

Private music lessons are offered to students after school. Contact Mr. Caleb Wilkerson for piano, guitar, ukulele or drums at
