Fine Arts are an integral part of Metro Christian Academy. Possessing some of the most highly recognized programs in the area, our students receive state acclaim and recognition in band, choir, jazz band, show choir, and drama. MCA art students have historically received many prestigious local, regional, and national awards from Scholastic Art, Young Talent of Oklahoma, NatureWorks, and the Superintendent's Award of Arts Excellence.
Metro Christian Academy's art program begins in elementary school as a weekly class introducing the basic elements of art and principles of design, while secondary students have the opportunity participate in art classes ranging from beginning art to advanced placement and art studio. All art students experiment with a wide variety of media, including pencil, marker, watercolor, paint, clay, papier-mâché, and print making.
Beginning in preschool, elementary students attend weekly music class where they explore rhythm, melody, harmony, and instruments. All Elementary students participate in music class, as well as musical productions at all grade levels. Students in sixth through twelfth grades may participate in concert choir, show choir, and the praise & worship team. The various choirs perform at numerous functions throughout the year including the Christmas concert, weekly chapel, contests, festivals, and the Metro Christian Academy graduation. In recent years, the vocal music students have also performed at Disney World and Carnegie Hall.
Beginning in middle school, students are introduced to a wide variety of instruments through their participation in the Patriot band program. The Patriot band performs during school assemblies, sporting events, evening concerts. They also attend area competitions where they consistently receive Superior ratings throughout the year.
Students in the drama program are exposed to the study of movement, voice, acting, characterization, improvisation, theatrical production, and dramatic and literary genres. Throughout the year, drama produces the One Act Play, a Winter Production, and a major all-school musical production in the spring. At the One Act Play competition, drama students continually receive both regional, as well as state championships, All-State Honors, and All-State nominations for their dedication and performance. The spring musical invites middle school and high school students to be part of a production incorporating over 100 cast members and crew. Past productions include Beauty and the Beast, Oklahoma, Guys and Dolls, and Footloose.
