Music is part of the curriculum at each academic phase at Central Christian. Beginning at preschool and continuing through elementary school, students participate in music classes twice per week. In addition to taking music classes, students perform in the annual Christmas play. Student roles in the play increase in size and difficulty each year with the kindergarten students beginning in the mass choir and continuing all the way through the grades with the fifth graders leading the way with the starring roles.
Beginning in middle school and continuing through high school, different music options are offered as electives and students can audition to perform in the annual spring Musical. Fantastic productions such as Seussical and Frozen Jr. delight the audience and give our students an opportunity to shine and showcase their amazing gifts.
All elementary students have art/stem once per week. Classes start in the fall with age-appropriate lessons in technology fundamentals, online safety, and digital citizenship for the first two months of school. Then they switch gears and cover Principles of Art for the next five months with weekly projects to reinforce the concepts. The last three months of the school year focus on Literacy Based STEM (LBS, reading a book and completing a project based on the book), Project Based STEM (PBL), seasonal STEM projects, NGSS STEM (science standard based), and engineering (where students are presented with an engineering problem and must work together to solve the problem).

Middle and high school students can take Art, STEM, and Technology classes as electives. Elective options vary each year and have included Art, Computer Science, Applied Imagination, Photography, Creative Writing, and Drama/Film.
