Mission, Vision & Strategy
Rockford Christian School strives to offer a Fine Arts Curriculum that is recognized for its overall excellence and innovation. We believe creativity is one of the unique ways we are made in God’s image. As such, we offer three unique, yet related dimensions of Fine Arts: Visual Art, Theatre, and Music (Choral and Instrumental). Our pursuit as a Fine Arts Department is to produce artists and scholars who are able to integrate their intellect and faith with their art, and their art with their worldview.
Our Vision is to be the premiere Christian Fine Arts program in North Central Illinois by providing the highest quality academic and artistic education.
Our Mission is to educate students in visual and performing arts by providing a lifelong foundation for the understanding and appreciation of all arts. Being made by a loving and creative God, we believe the arts are a vital component to the development of all students; and our goal is to provide an education that stimulates thinking, develops skills, and enables students to thrive in a changing world.
The Fine Arts Department's mission is central to RCS, because the arts are at the heart of intellectual, social, and personal development.
Our Strategy as a Fine Arts Department is to foster artists who continually grow in their discipline through the following process:
Expose our students to various styles and genres within each discipline.
Equip our students with the information, tools, and skills necessary to expand their abilities.
Empower our students to showcase their developing skills and talents through a variety of professional opportunities.
