Introduction to and understanding of the arts are vital to a young person’s intellectual and emotional development, providing important outlets for self-expression and avenues for increasing self-confidence. Students from Early Learner through 12th grade are given the opportunity to participate in the fine arts through classroom instruction, extra-curricular clubs and private lessons.
Elementary students participate in weekly instrumental and general music education. Kindergarten, first and second graders are introduced to music through violin/strings. As their literacy skills increase, they learn to read music, as well. Students in 3rd and 4th grades continue music instruction utilizing percussion, recorders and Orff instruments. The band program begins in third grade. All fifth grade students are given guitar instruction. Instruction in visual/ studio art is provided for all students K-5. Voice, piano, strings and private instrument lessons are available to all students.
Middle and high school students are provided elective classes which include chorus, strings, band, visual/studio art and drama as a means to continue fine arts lessons during the academic day. Students may also participate in extra-curricular fine-arts activities. Drama club, chorus, band, piano, strings and voice lessons are part of the after-school program.
Fine Arts Scholarship Program
Peachtree Academy has always prioritized the importance of a well rounded education. Since
Covid limited our ability to focus on the arts, especially performances, our school is dedicating
renewed efforts to enhance our fine arts program, specifically targeting the performing and
visual arts . The goal of the program is to explore and develop artistic talents within young
students by making the arts pathway a core learning experience. Peachtree Academy would
like to invite talented junior artists who will be entering the 7th -12th grade to apply. We offer a
challenging academic program that is enhanced by a wide array of elective classes that
compliment the fine arts skill set. Scholarships will be awarded to 10 applicants who will be
selected by a review process that includes academic and artistic achievements.
The application window is March 1, 2022- April 1, 2022. The online application will be
available on the Peachtree Academy website. Only complete applications will be accepted.
