The Fine Arts Program

Montverde Academy offers a diverse and dynamic Fine Arts program including vocal music, theatre, orchestra, piano, crafts, ceramics, two-dimensional art, sculpture, and photography. We offer five Advanced Placement-level fine arts classes, and we have a strong record of sending students to some of the top Fine and Performing Arts college programs in America. Some of these schools our graduates have gone on to attend include Berklee College of Music, Columbia University, Otterbein University, University of Central Florida, Stetson University, Rollins College, Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Savannah College of Art and Design, and more.

Our hands-on program engages students at all levels in the arts. The Academy's top music groups feature a mix of talented, well-trained performers. Each school division has its own fine arts programs for music, theatre, and visual art, but Montverde Academy also encourages cooperation between all three levels. At least one full stage musical a year is open to students at every grade level, and we strive to incorporate other activities with all three department levels, such as our annual Lessons and Carols presentations, throughout the year as well.

The VPA (Visual and Performing Arts) degree program is part of the Study Area Concentration (SAC) program. Six programs are available in the VPA including Vocal Music, Piano, Theater, Art, Instrumental Music, and Musical Theatre.

All three are for students who thrive in the arts and want to enrich themselves and the world through community service that centers around theatre, visual art, and music. Our national charters allow us to participate in local and national conventions and create a spirit of community for our students.

The Arts - Love, Appreciate, Create

We encourage all of our students to love being a part of the fine arts program through the arts. Students are inspired to learn and appreciate the varied and wondrous offerings that the arts can provide. In creating a desire to produce unique works of art that speak to both the student and the world, they develop an emotional love of the arts that will last a lifetime.
