The Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Magnet is celebrating its 6th year and serves 9th-12th grade. The VAPA Magnet specializes in traditional arts and entertainment. VAPA students start with an introduction to theater, dance, music, and the visual arts. Advanced students experience depth of study in their chosen area of art. 

We offer the A-G graduation requirements, honors and Advanced Placement courses in multiple subjects. As well, we provide a personalized approach for our students as we guide them through high school years and help prepare them to be career and college ready.

ARTS EVERY YEAR: VAPA students take a minimum of one art class each year!

VAPA students have a multitude of opportunities to participate in concerts, shows, exhibits, festivals, competitions, tours, workshops, arts related field trips and our guest speaker series.
