“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” Aristotle


The purpose of all arts instruction at Harford Christian is to nurture the talents God has given young people, and to help them glorify Him. Whether it is a Shakespearean play, a band concert or a piano recital, our goal remains the same: to God be the glory.

Arts instruction at HCS begins early; rhythm instruments in kindergarten, choral/theory training in all elementary grades, speech and piano lessons beginning in first grade, band instruments in fourth, and hand bells in sixth. Performance opportunities range from major winter and spring concerts to recitals, band concerts, competitions and weekly chapels. HCS is a perennial first-place winner in the Maryland Association of Christian Schools state fine arts competition, as the school trophy cases attest.
