THE ARTS - Middle School
Our POPCS Fine Arts faculty share the common goal of creating an environment that helps students grow artistically, intellectually, and personally in their studies.  Whether students dream of pursuing a professional career or to develop an appreciation for the arts, every Fine Arts student receives a balanced and comprehensive program of instruction in the arts. The study of techniques, processes and experience form a foundation for thinking about their own uniqueness and their God-given gifts. 
The Prince of Peace Christian School Fine Arts Center houses a 500-seat contemporary theatre as well as band, choir and theatre halls with private practice rooms and art studio.  The POPCS Art Gallery displays student works throughout the year and is located in the lobby of the Fine Arts Center.   
With numerous opportunities for hands-on creation, performance, tech, and fine arts studies, the award-winning POPCS Fine Arts department celebrates the creative disciplines.
Prince of Peace Christian School has an award-winning POPCS Upper School Arts Program that features theatre, choir, band, and visual arts.
