We believe that the arts play a crucial role in building strong minds. In addition to weekly music and art classes, Vista Ridge Academy offers the opportunity for students to participate in choir and our Strings of the Rockies program (funded in part by Avista Adventist Hospital). Private music lessons (piano, instrument, guitar, strings) are also available, and we are happy to provide contact information for the musicians who provide lessons on our campus.
We find that our students benefit personally, socially and academically when they participate in art and music education. Please watch the video to the right from Cognitive Genesis that discusses the educational value students can gain by playing musical instruments.
