The Academy of Creative Arts

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 be 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 through 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 2020 semester, we will be featuring our music and language classes. The music program is open to all ages. Students ages 6-9 years old must complete an audition before enrollment.

Why ACA?
At Church On The Rock, we believe that every Christian is a steward of the portion of what God has given. It is then the duty to use that portion (gifts/talents) for God's glory to win souls for Christ. We believe that our worship is also expressed in creative arts. He has blessed all of us with creative desires and talents. Let us help you develop those gifts in the arts so that you can reach more souls through excellence.
