In an era where arts programs are being cut at area schools, our arts programs are a vibrant part of the WCS experience. We offer curricular and extra-curricular programs in vocal music (K-12), instrumental music (3-12) visual arts (K-12) and dramatic arts (6-12. To quote Martha Burton, Ohio Arts Council member and McConnell Arts Center board member,
“Worthington Christian’s art teachers [have] vision, innovation and drive, board members who know the importance of the arts, and a plethora of parents who care. [Worthington Christian] has the recipe for success.” (On the Arts, Suburban News Publications, April 12, 2011)
Our course offerings vary from Music Theory to Advanced Placement Art. Our art instructors vigorously facilitate competitive college placements and scholarships. WCHS students were the first individuals chosen to serve as art interns at the McConnell Art Center where they plan and execute all aspects of art exhibits throughout the 2011-2012 school year.
Our thriving strings program is available for students in grades 3 through 12 – in our elementary school alone, we have over 38% participation rate. Our middle school and high school both have bands and a variety of performance choirs.
WCS helps to coordinate multiple student-led art shows with openings in both school and public venues. Annual drama productions, including musicals, plays, studio shows, student-led productions and dramas performed by grades 6 – 12 are staples of WCS student life. Community choir performances are also annual events designed to further enhance WCS’s arts programs.
