Fine Arts

The CCS Fine Arts program allows our students to further develop worthwhile attributes. Students have the opportunity to be involved in art, drama, speech, music, and choir. Our students (elementary, junior high, and high school) compete in the Alabama Christian Education Association (ACEA) state fine arts competition each year. First-place winners have the opportunity to compete on a national level in South Carolina.
