Vision - Beauty - Talent

Vision

Our vision is to have a creative learning community that engages students both artistically and intellectually, instilling responsibility, ethics, knowledge and academic rigor for college and career preparedness.

Mission

Our mission is to provide a quality arts and educational experience that is creative and challenging to all students who have an interest or passion for the arts.  The integration of an education which supports the A-G requirements for college admission and a visual and performing arts theme will provide opportunities to increase student engagement and participation, promote the arts as an essential part of life by making connections to student life experiences and global issues, to promote visual and artistic literacy and create a lifelong passion for the arts.
