Temple Christian Academy Fine Arts programs offer to help K5-12th grade students develop their talents and sharpen their skills for the Lord. Our goal has been to glorify Christ by providing an opportunity for students to participate in events under music, speech, art, and core subjects. Students also perform for the Christmas, and spring programs. Each area has been carefully planned to help prepare students’ minds and abilities for a life of service to Christ. Students have the privilege to compete in the Texas Organization of Christian Schools Fine Arts district and regional competitions throughout the North Texas area which provides students a time of fellowship with other students in a Christ-honoring environment.
