The fine arts are an integral part of our make up as human beings and providing students the opportunity to experience and be well trained in these disciplines is vital to their overall development. The mission of the Fine Arts Department at Cypress Christian School is to provide students with excellent performing and visual arts training that honors God by acknowledging that our gifts and talents are bestowed on us by Him, and therefore should be used to glorify God and serve others.
