Christ Chapel Academy Performing Arts Department offers Wind Ensembles, Strings, Choir, Drama, and Worship Arts programs.
All Elementary school students have a music class. Elementary K-3 students take general music once a week. 4th -5th grade students have general music once a week with an option to participate in Strings or Worship Arts.
Our award winning secondary school wind ensemble is for 6th through the 12th grade students. The curriculum was adapted from Prince William County School’s curriculum and Virginia Standards of Learning. Students perform for Christmas and Spring programs, as well as Fine Arts Festival competitions, and community outreaches. A significant feature for Christ Chapel Academy’s wind ensemble program is weekly group instruction given by specialists.
This year, our String program changed from an after school program to an in-school program. Beginning String class is offered to fourth grade students, with an advanced String class offered to 5th through 12th grade.
Choirs participate in Fine Arts Festivals and school-wide programs, as well as community programs and concerts.
The Drama Students put on a Broadway style show every Spring where over 100 or more students participate either onstage or backstage. The drama students also perform several times throughout the school year in the school wide concerts as well as several skit performances during student chapel services.
Our Worship Arts program includes a student lead worship band. The students learn to rehearse, produce and lead worship each week for our student chapel service, providing vocalists and instrumentation. The Worship Arts class hopes to expose students to this aspect of the performing arts in an effort to prepare godly men and women to go into all of the world and participate in leading praise and worship.
