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.
