The arts have the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.

The Arts In Holistic Education
The Arts are an opportunity to express our inner-most desires; it allows people to transcend differences and encourages individuals to express themselves through varied forms of communication. The Arts are more than brass, paint, and scripts. It is the celebration of different perspectives and the appreciation for the infinite beauty that is the vision, sound, and voice of God’s Creation. We believe these things to be true, and as such, we believe the inclusion of the arts in holistic education is vital.
The Arts at TCIS
TCIS believes in holistic education, and every student is surrounded by the Arts from K-12. Students have opportunities to create and perform at all grade levels with access to proper facilities and professional partners. These opportunities encourage students to excel and progress in their awareness of creativity. In small-class settings, students are given the individual attention required that is proven as an indicator for future success. Further research shows that success in the arts improves learning in all other subject areas. We are proud to support student learning through a stellar arts program!
The TCIS arts program combines elements of fine arts and contemporary visual and performing arts. Opportunities are offered in a variety of formats for learners of all levels, from foundational instruction to personal development under mentor-style guidance. Learning happens in the classroom as a part of the curriculum, as a part of the co-curricular offerings for activities, and inter-disciplinary as a supportive element to learning.
At TCIS, the arts are all around us!
