    US Academy Singers (audition required)

    The Academy Singers is a vocal ensemble that meets as a class for the entire school year with the goal of performing throughout the year, as well as recording a professional quality CD.

    Academy Singers audition sign-up sheets are outside the fine arts office behind the theatre.

    Interested students need to sign up for a sight-reading session on Monday, May 15th between 7 AM and 3 PM. Singing auditions will be also be on Monday, May 15th from 3-6 PM in the chorus room. You must stay for this entire time. See Mr. Wise or Mr. Nygren for details.

    Jazz and Rock band auditions will be Wednesday, May 17th from 3-6 PM in the band room. Sign-up sheets are now posted on the bulletin board by the band room. See Mr. Wills or Mr. Nygren for details.

    US Academy Singers The Academy Singers is a vocal ensemble that meets as a class for the entire school year with the goal of performing, as well as recording a professional quality CD. Students are expected to market and sell CDs of their recording as a part of the class. Audition criteria include sight-reading, part-singing, solo performance and stage presence.

    Auditions will begin May 15th and additional information can be found here.

    There are two parts to the audition:

    • Sight-Reading—Students will be asked to clap a short rhythm and to sight-read a short melody, using any neutral syllable (na,na,na) solfege (do re mi fa) or numbers (1, 2, 3). Sight-reading auditions will be recorded for reference. Examples of sight-reading exercises may be found on the Academy Singer website under the AUDITION tab.
    • Solo Performance and Stage Presence & Part-Singing—Part two of the audition will be held in the chorus during mid-May. Students are asked to prepare 30 seconds of a song in any style without accompaniment or tracks. Song choice should allow for the student to demonstrate strength of range and vocal quality, and students should deliver the song with a confident and poised stage presence. It is always a good idea to select a song that has a discernible melody that does not heavily depend on an instrumental track since the solos will be sung a cappella.

    In addition to the solo audition, students will be asked to sing a harmony part (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone or bass) of a short musical excerpt. Good intonation (pitch) is an important part of this criterion. No preparation is necessary, these parts will be taught as a part of the audition. Students are required to stay for the entire audition. 

    US Speech – no audition required
    Speech is an extra-curricular activity that allows students to showcase their speaking and acting skills in a competitive arena. Categories include Humorous Interpretation, Dramatic Interpretation, Original Oratory, Prose and Poetry. No audition is required for participation.

    US Jazz Band Our Upper School Jazz Ensemble meets as a class during the entire school year. Brass and woodwind students must also be in the concert band in order to participate in the Jazz Ensemble. Exceptions are made only for academic scheduling concerns. Guitarists, pianists and drummers who do not play a concert band instrument can participate in jazz band only. Our jazz ensemble is a traditional jazz band covering all of the major jazz styles (swing, latin, be-bop, fusion, etc.) with an emphasis on the theory and skills required for jazz improvisation. Auditions will be held mid-May for the following year. 

    US Contemporary Music Ensemble/Rock Band This versatile group plays current pop music, classic rock, and contemporary Christian music and serves instrumentalists who play drums, keyboards, bass, and guitar. This group also meets as a class for the entire year. Auditions will be held mid-May for the following year.

  • Parent Involvement
  • Summer Math

    Without practice, students may lose new mathematical knowledge or see a decline in basic skills over the summer months. With consistent practice students do not require as much review and are able to better connect new concepts with previously learned material. Therefore, summer math work is required for all middle school students.

  • Summer Reading Enrichment for Upper School Students

    During the month of July and early August, Mr. Lyle Husband (9th and 11th grade English teacher) will offer a weeklong summer reading session for each upper school grade level. During this time, the students and Mr. Husband will read the required summer reading book aloud and discuss it intensively.

    BA Students will be expected to demonstrate knowledge of summer reading texts in a variety of ways during August and September.  Several assessments early in the school year are tied to summer reading, and this opportunity will be a very valuable step toward a great start of the school year. This enrichment program is open to any upper school student, organized by grade level, and has the potential to positively impact the students’ first quarter averages. 

    The cost of the program is $100. 

    In addition to reading together during this time, students will also learn valuable reading strategies and complete graphic organizers to aid the understanding of character analysis and important themes. In short, students who take advantage of this opportunity will be more prepared and confident as they begin school in August.

    Each student needs to bring the required summer reading book and pens and pencils. All meetings will be in the theatre.
