Music and Fine Arts
Mission Statement and Philosophy
The Music and Fine Arts Department at Mile High Academy seeks to inspire young people of all ages to be
actively involved in the arts in its varied forms so they can glorify God, minister to people, learn focus and
discipline, be part of a music making community, and grow to become well rounded individuals who appreciate music and the arts, understand its power to serve and are committed to making it a part of their lives as adults and parents themselves.
Summary of Program
At Mile High Academy every student has a tremendous opportunity to grow their musical and artistic God given abilities, to discover new abilities and to learn new skills. From the youngest ages to the High School student who is ready for college, we are committed to providing quality musical and artistic education. This includes, among others, an array of ensembles and group lessons including Suzuki strings, Concert Band/Orchestra, Choirs, Hand Bell Choir and Theory and Appreciation classes. The school also fosters and hosts many private lessons and encourages all students to take advantage of one on one instruction. Many of the groups participate in many church services in the area. Some have tours and specialized trips and requirements. Please see the office and the Music Director for specific dates of all performance and concerts.
