TCHS Visual & Performing Arts Magnet Program
Celebrating Academic & Artistic Excellence
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 music technology. 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.
The mission of the Visual and Performing Arts Magnet Program is to develop the academic and artistic skills of talented students in an interdisciplinary environment. Students are encouraged to explore the full range of their discipline in a collaborative atmosphere which meets the highest standards of academic and professional arts training.
