Mr. Jeff Rice

Instructor in Fine Arts

Jeff Rice grew up in Baltimore, but came to North Carolina to attend college. His involvement in campus ministry, especially directing the student choir, set the course for a life of work in ministry.  “Music helps animate and amplify what we believe, what we feel, what we think. It’s my hope that by participating in our  ensembles at the Academy, students will not only grow musically, but intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.” Mr. Rice is the founder and director of the Liturgical Choir, serving Catholic Campus Ministry at NC State and Meredith College.

Mr. Rice earned his B.A. in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He teaches courses in music and history.
