* DUE TO COVID, FCA IS NOT ABLE TO OFFER STRING ORCHESTRA 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR.
FCA students are encouraged to participate in our fine arts program. Offerings range from developing skills in music and drama to visual arts. As educators, we firmly believe in our mission to develop the whole student. Our fine arts program does that by complementing the academic and spiritual education at the academy. Our students perform and display their skills at local churches, our community, and the region at-large.
The FCA Premier String Orchestra
Our FCA Premier String Orchestra remains a marquee ensemble of very talented and highly dedicated young performers. Students, Grade 2 through the Upper Grades, are eligible to participate in this publicly recognized music program. Non- FCA students from our local community may also participate. FCA is blessed to have the artistic and supportive services of Mrs. Marj Dutillly, who is the academy’s music director.
