Unique Arts Opportunity at Trinity Chapel Academy, Powder Springs, GA

At a time when many schools are decreasing funds for the arts or completely deleting arts programs Trinity Chapel Academy in Powder Springs has an Arts Program that is thriving.  Robbie Ooten, music educator and professional violinist,  has been providing a quality music program since 2001. All students at TCA attend music and art classes every week as part of the school curriculum.
Beginning in  4th grade students are given the rare opportunity to play in an orchestra and learn the violin, viola, cello, or bass  or they may choose to sing in the chorus which is lead by Virginia Wheeler. Ms. Wheeler is a  well respected veteran teacher with former students who have made careers in music.  Students are given opportunities to participate in music events at the district and state level such as the Georgia All State Chorus and Orchestra or community groups  such as the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Suzanne Huff is the art teacher.  Our students have been awarded prizes and recognition in local, state, and national art competitions.  Students at TCA are immersed in arts as a vital part of their education. Private strings, piano, and art lessons are made available to students at TCA during after school hours.
Studies show that involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills. Our arts program helps students absorb important skills and helps the child’s academic and emotional development.  
Please attend TCA’s Open House on February 25 at 7:00 pm - 4665 Macland Road, Powder Springs, GA to learn more about their Arts program and school curriculum or call 678-831-1062 for admission or tour information. Trinity Chapel Academy is accredited by SACS (AdvancEd) and GAC.
