All ACS choir programs are intentionally directed to each child’s spiritual growth. We believe music and song are a form of worship. Introducing students to this concept at a young age, and reinforcing throughout their school career, is vital to their spiritual walk with God. We emphasize that music is a form of worship that can be shown from the inside out.
Our students will learn advanced sight reading skills, produce a professional-like tone quality, learn valuable communication and leadership skills, will continue to develop solo voices and ranges, and master the performance skills used in a professional setting. Students will sing a variety of works including modern pop and rock, contemporary choral pieces, and classical choral works. The ACS Choir is directed by Mrs. Joy Broussard.

The ACS High School Choir is made up of 9th-12th grade students and is an important part of our Creative Ministry Arts program. Students earn 1 carnige credit and learn proper performance etiquette, stage performance and how to worship through song. We also prepare for our annual Christmas and Spring Concerts in this class.
Praise & Worship not only requires students to work as a team, but also teaches them to lead others in worship. The Praise & Worship Team meets regularly in preparation to lead during a student chapel service. The importance of leading corporate worship in a school environment is demonstrated through our worship leaders. This is such a huge spiritual responsibility for anyone, especially for students. Students leading students is the goal… allowing God to use these student lead chapel and bring souls to Himself is the higher honor.
The Praise & Worship Team has an audition process at the beginning of each semester. The team is selected based upon each students’ testimony, character and skill. Applicants are reviewed by the Administration and the Music & Performing Arts faculty.
Building on skills developed during our Elementary Choir classes, students gain valuable singing experience. Students have the opportunity to lead their peers in worship. We have such a large amount of students that desire to be on the worship team that we have several different worship team groups. Every student on the Worship team has an opportunity to perform in our chapels.
Elementary School students in grades 1st-5th can be a part of the ACS Praise & Worship Team, leading their peers in worship during chapel and building valuable experience.
Middle and High School students can be a part of the ACS Praise & Worship Team, leading their peers in worship during chapel and building valuable experience.
Students interested in playing a musical instrument on our worship teams will find opportunities to learn and build experience at ACS.
Students as young as 6th grade can be invited to receive private instruments lessons at ACS. Methods are tailored to the student’s age, as well as current knowledge and understanding of the instrument.
Private instrument lessons are offered weekly during the school year, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Lessons are after school, and are 30 minutes long.
