Fine Arts, in Cherokee County Schools, is the study of Music, Arts and Theater. All elementary students receive weekly art and music instruction. Students in middle school have the option of choosing visual arts, music and theater as a connection class. High schools offer a full array of arts courses and performance groups, as well as a Fine Arts Pathway and selected AP courses. Gifted students may also audition for the Governor's Honors Program in the area of Fine Arts, as well as select arts competitions held by Georgia High School Association.
CCSD has an emphasis on Fine arts at Hasty Elementary School Fine Arts Academy and Oak Grove Elementary School STEAM Academy (STEM + fine arts) where the arts are integrated into K-5 instruction. Parents can choose for their children to attend a Fine Arts Academy each February during school reassignment (for the following school year).
