About Visual and Performing Arts


Department Mission

The Visual and Performing Arts Magnet Program is committed to preparing today’s student to becoming a productive, responsible, and self-reliant citizen ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s technological and multicultural society. Students are encouraged to explore the full range of their discipline in a collaborative and nurturing environment which meets the highest standards of academic and professional arts training.

Program Overview

The Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) Magnet Program at Tri-Cities High School was launched in 1990. The program is designed for motivated students who possess an interest in the areas of music, visual arts, dance, drama, or television production. Gifted young artists receive highly specialized training in the arts while earning a high school diploma. The creation of the VPA Magnet Program at Tri-Cities High School is one of the best efforts by any high school in the Southeast to correlate an academic program with concentrated training in both the visual and performing arts.
