Artistic expression provides unique and creative ways to share God-given gifts and talents to impact others. Through Christian Academy’s growing and awardwinning School of the Arts, students have numerous opportunities to develop their gifts.

Scholastic Art and Writing is the largest and longest running art competition in the world with more than 330,000 students competing annually. We are honored for our students to have work selected at this level.

Visual Art Students at the English Station Campus of Christian Academy School System were awarded 52 Scholastic Awards in 2018: 3 gold Key Portfolio Awards, 10 individual work Gold Keys, 15 Silver Keys, 8 Honorable Mention Portfolios and 16 individual Honorable Mention Awards. The Regional Gold Key award winning art goes on to be judged at the national level. This year our students were awarded 3 National Silver Medals. National Awards are presented at Carnegie Hall in New York.

While man-given awards are appreciated, it is the heart that adds to the lives of others. Students are challenged to convey spiritual truth in art and realize that all art depicts either Creation, The Fall of Man, Redemption or Restoration. This year our students also created the art for reading books for students with Down syndrome at our Providence School. Past efforts have also contributed Scripture-based art for local nursing homes.

In supporting the development of talent God has given to our students, Christian Academy has grown our visual arts department under Department Chair Tammy Cusick. We offer 13 different art classes ranging from drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture and the digital arts, including AP courses in Studio Drawing, AP 2-D design and AP 3-D Design. All classes are taught with a biblical worldview, giving glory to the Creator over the creation. This reflects the theme of our School of the Arts: Soli Deo Gloria. Glory to God Alone.
