The Academy of Creative Arts

Church on the Rock believes every Christian is a steward of the gifts God has given. Let our Academy of Creative Arts help you develop your artistic gifts.

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 Spring semester, we will be featuring music and dance 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 auditions for students ages 6-9 email us at or pre-register online here.

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.
