Church on the Rock: The Academy of Creative Arts
About
The Academy of Creative Arts is an all-arts academy established at Church on The Rock in St. Peters, Missouri. We express our love for God through music, film, photography, audio engineering, and live production. We believe that every person is creative and has God-given gifts and abilities that should explored and be developed to expand God's Kingdom. We do everything in excellence, simplicity, integrity and we are driven by purpose. For us, we build God's kingdom though the arts.

The Academy of Creative Arts operates and is based on an academic year. To get the full experience of the program every student must commit to at least, but not limited to, one academic semester.

For our Fall 2017 semester we will be featuring our music and video production classes. The music program is open to all ages. Students ages 6-9 years old must complete an audition before enrollment. To set up a day and time for enrollment audition for students ages 6-9 email us at aca@cotr.org.
