The Gifted School is the forerunner in art education with designing and developing its own educational curriculum called (b)smART© that advances the minds of students through the platform of art in concentrated studies of biblical studies, math, science and visual literacy.  This curriculum is implemented in all current studies.

The Gifted School: A Christian Preparatory School of Academic Arts is the first and only Arts School for grades K-12 in the nation that specializes in fine arts education year-round.

Academic distinction:

  • Teachings of Christ are developed in all studies by making young disciples to spread the gospel by using our gifts to glorify Him

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms - so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power forever and ever." (1 Peter 4:10-11)

  • The Gifted School's (b)smART© curriculum

  • The Gifted School is a non-competitive school that values each student and their works equally, building confidence within them through annual student exhibitions.

Christ is the Center of All Subjects

With Christ present in all education, The Gifted School takes fine art education very serious. At a young age, The Gifted School's Academic Courses present positive encouragement, reinforcement and curriculum that focuses on the light of Christ rather than the darkness that can be deceived in many genres, teachers and studies of art.

The Gifted School values each parent who is seeking further growth in their child's gift of visual art. 

An Early-Age Education

We start education at age 5

The Gifted School accepts students at the early age of 5, because this is a crucial age for building the preliminary foundation for visual learning, critical thinking, and expression, which leads to the structured formation, development and advancement of the mind. The Gifted School concentrates and further develops each student's gifts - individually. With the proper tools, resources and background, The Gifted School is able to teach fine art curriculum that is always new and innovative. The Gifted School never uses material that is recycled, replicated or reproduced which can hinder mental growth and progression, potentially blocking creativity and every-day problem solving.

Continued Education

Our long-term Academic Program is designed to produce constant construction and progression of each student's mind up to 18 years of age. It is The Gifted School's passion that all students receive the utmost attention to their gift by helping form and further develop their potential into preparing them as leaders, disciples and servants of Christ.
