We strive to help facilitate the expression of individuality and support students in the variety of artistic endeavors available at our school. We share in the belief that art is an important part of every child's development and of the school community.

Mission Statement

Believing that God has blessed each individual with creative gifts, the Arts Alliance seeks to nurture and encourage each student in the discovery of their talents to bring glory to God.
