"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.”
The arts at Covenant Day is a crucial component of the curriculum through which students acknowledge God and exercise responsibility in the creative production, expression, understanding, evaluation, and response to art with respect to God, the world, others, and themselves.
Art is taught as a subject with a written and sequentially organized curriculum consisting of lessons containing content from four areas: foundations, creative expressions, historical and cultural relevance, and critical evaluation and response. The lessons build a body of cumulative knowledge, understandings, and skills in arts that can be appropriately evaluated. Students’ abilities are developed to create art, analyze, interpret, and evaluate qualities of art and how people make judgements about it and justify those judgements.
On April 14-15, 2018 seven students from the high school choral program represented Covenant Day School in the NCMEA High School All-State Choir. This prestigious event, held in Raleigh, unites the top high school singers from around the state and allows them to collaborate on collegiate-level pieces of music. CDS was one of only three Christian schools in the state, and the only private school in Charlotte, with students selected to the All-State Choir. Congratulations to CDS choral students Josh Chacko, Hanna Colvin, Kimmi Curcio, Grace Keel, Lance Lokas, Tori Winsky, and Tim Yardley.
