Our School

Beginning in the fall of 2021, IBAA will open its doors to students in junior high and grade 9 of high school for full-time, engaging, high-caliber instruction in all subjects: science, math, language arts, social science/humanities, and physical education - all taught from a distinctively arts-based perspective. Along with the core subjects, students will be exposed to a breadth of art subjects and will have the opportunity to engage with the visual arts, graphic arts, performing arts, literary arts, and even the culinary arts. 

Our Academics

As continuing arts education has been tossed aside in favor of focusing on the STEM curriculum in our public schools, Image Bearers Arts Academy will fill the gap and provide not only high quality science, technology, engineering and math courses, but will teach those courses while exposing students to a breadth of the arts unparalleled in the public K-12 education institutions that exist today; from introductory courses in every art medium to focused elective conservatory education in dance, theater, visual arts, media arts, culinary arts and music.

Our Educational Philosophy

Our mission is to offer a challenging education grounded in the Christian Faith and the arts to produce young men and women who wisely and persuasively express beauty, goodness, and truth in order to care for our culture with the love of God.
 
IBAA has 5 pillars of education that enables us to accomplish this mission. Click below to read more about our educational philosophy.
We "do not provide arts education to create more artists, though that is a byproduct. The real purpose of arts education is to create complete human beings capable of leading successful and productive lives in a free society."
