STUDENT LIFE

God has blessed each of us with an imagination and a variety of abilities to express ourselves creatively. Faith Baptist Schools provides many opportunities for students to develop the artistic talents God has given to them.  Faith Baptist’s Art Department believes that through careful and skillful training, a child’s imagination can be lovingly guided to celebrate through expressing what God has given to us.

The ability to create at any age or level can be rewarding. Elementary students are taught color theory, how to draw using simple shapes and familiar lines, and introduced to famous artists of the past along with their works. The influence of art occurs in multiple facets of learning, therefore art history is taught in the Intermediate Studio Art course. Advanced Placement Studio Art offers an opportunity for a portfolio to be built in the areas of drawing, 2D design and photography. Students can earn college credit for this course while still in high school.

Would a digital art gallery (a few images of artwork, maybe those who place at West Coast) be of interest?

At Faith Baptist, we believe that lessons learned in the process of preparing and competing in athletics contribute to the building of Christian character, and each practice, each play, or each game ought to be performed with all our might. Ecclesiastes 9:10 With forty two different teams, many of our students are able to learn and compete in a variety of different sports.

​Faith Baptist Schools offer an advanced academic program, and music plays a huge part in the well-rounded development of a student. The choral program of FBS starts with our beginning choir in 1st and 2nd grade, learning the basics of tone production, music learning through note reading, rote and Kodaly system, and performances throughout the year. In the third grade, choir class is part of the class instruction once a week. In 4th-8th grade, choir is offered as an elective which gives the student a chance for performances in chapels, winter, spring, open house concerts, nursing home ministries, and an opportunity to represent Faith Baptist School as a group in the yearly Fine Arts Competition at West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, CA in the second week of March. 

Choral class for the senior high level is more exciting. The high school choir has more opportunities in chapels, church conferences, nursing home ministries, as well as concerts and at least one competition for the year at West Coast Baptist College. If a student has been a choir member for six consecutive semesters (Freshman-Junior year), the student may classify the choir class in the senior year as a college credit class through Colorado Christian University Dual Enrollment Program. This gives the student an extra bump in his GPA.

 

2019-2020 school year also is the start of our specialized vocal ensemble that will travel to perform and be trained to sing acapella. Membership in this group is by audition only, with a classification of first or second ensemble.
