Christian Conservatory

Communication. Perspective. Servant Leadership

Reclaiming the Arts for Christ

With a passion for building up communicators grounded in a Biblical philosophy, The Academy of Arts Christian Conservatory holds fast to its mission of training young people in the powerful mediums of drama, music, and film.

Residential Programs

We offer a 2-year Associates of Arts degree and a 3-year Bachelor of Arts degree in Sacred Dramatic Production and Film & Media as part of our residential program. Students attend classes at our headquarters in Taylors, SC. The programs prepare the students to be well-rounded in that field as well as opportunities for more growth in specific areas.

Online Programs

We are excited to be launching our 2-year Associates of Arts degree and 3-year Bachelor of Arts degree in Sacred Dramatic Production online! This program provides an interactive education that leaves the student prepared with all the knowledge to be a confident drama teacher or grow in a specific area of interest.

G.A.P. Year

Unsure as to what you should do after high school? Should I get a degree? What do I want to get a degree in? Our one year GAP program is designed to help students "Gain A Perspective." This is a residential program that gives students training in areas of theatre, film & media, music, and ministry. Our goal is to help guide students to find their God given abilities and grow their craft during this time.

Hands-On Learning

Practical, real world experience is a long standing focus of our program. Constant application and practice gives our students not only knowledge, but the experience they need to enter any situation with confidence. 

Principle-Driven Education

We focus on teaching the principles of learning for each area of study, as opposed to just the “do’s” and “don’ts” so that each of our graduates has a strong foundation of learning and practical knowledge. This enables them to enter the work force with confidence, knowing they have a foundational skill set and mindset to deal with almost any obstacle they may encounter.

Biblical Perspective

Our biblically-based philosophies prepare our students to earnestly contend for the truth of God’s Word through the mediums of drama, music, and film. 

About us

In 1974, the “Academy of Arts College on Wheels” program was begun out of the necessity to provide college-aged young people a safe place to hone their artistic talents and God-given gifts. 

Students were invited to travel for a two or three year educational program which would provide them with the training and hands-on experience vital to this unique endeavor. 

Over the years the program has expanded, and in 2014, God allowed us to take our place amongst Christian education as the only Christian institute solely dedicated to the study of the arts and how to use the arts to impact the world of Christ.
