Our Mission

The SMLC Academy serves St. Michael Lutheran Church as well as the greater Fort Wayne community by inspiriting, educating, and empowering students of all ages through comprehensive instruction in the performing and visual arts.

We believe that music, dance, and the visual arts inspire people to consider new opportunities and challenges, and instill the habits of the mind that can last a lifetime: perseverance, confidence, a focus on excellence, and the ability to critically analyze and solve problems.

We also believe that the arts serve as a foundational medium for reaching, engaging, and motivating people towards a deeper relationship with Jesus. To that end, we recognize God as the ultimate source of artistic expression, and we seek to instill a passion in each student to utilize their artistic gifts for His glory.

Growth Opportunities

The St. Michael Academy of the Arts is dedicated to seeing each student glorify God with their gifts. For that reason, we offer many opportunities for students to participate in areas that serve as a testament to their growth and gifting.

is the greatest treasure in the world.
