Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) students are passionate, empathetic, resilient, unique, and ambitious. Through rigorous academics, creative thinking, and unique and relevant learning, VPA students advocate for inclusion and acceptance while exploring their talents and ambitions.

Studying the Arts:

  • Encourages students to develop tools of thinking: careful abstraction from
    complexity, symbolic representation and qualitative judgement.
  • Helps students connect intellectual academic accomplishments with creative
    expression and experience a truly balanced education by linking cognitive growth to
    social and emotional development focused on skills and interests.
  • Empowers students to strengthen problem-solving and critical thinking skills, to
    develop a sense of craftsmanship and appreciation and foster opportunities for
    development of a positive work ethic with pride in a job well done.
  • Provides students with a supportive environment that celebrates personal talents
    with opportunities to excel in areas of giftedness such as art, dance, drama, and
    music.
