Hebron Christian Academy recently announced that it would expand its high school fine arts offerings.

The Dacula private school said it would offer a high school diploma with a distinction in fine arts. This program will be offered to all high school students interested in pursuing a college major in visual or performing arts.

Hebron’s overall fine arts program is expanding to include advanced classes in theater, dance, music theory, photography, cinematography, film, screenwriting and directing.

Hebron already offers several choral ensembles, drama, marching band, as well as visual art courses which include graphic design, ceramics and 3-D art courses.

“Our goal in the fine arts department is to encourage artistic creativity and skill in our students, and to help them understand how they can use their girts for the greater glory of God,” Chris Castner, fine arts department head, said in a press release.

The arts expansion is part of a $10 million multi-phase building program that will eventually add a new middle school, fine arts center and elementary school in the next two years. The need for the new 28,000 square foot facility, officials said, is because the existing buildings need to be updated or replaced.

The middle school building is scheduled to open this fall, while the elementary building is slated for 2018.
