About AVPA

The Academy of Visual and Performing Arts (AVPA) offers artistic pathways that provide a challenging and comprehensive academic arts curriculum for students interested in developing their passion and interest in the arts.  Authentic learning opportunities, intensive study, guest artist visits, masterclasses, internships, and off-site visits provide a strong foundation for students who wish to pursue the arts at any level.

AVPA offers the following Pathway opportunities:

  • Dance
  • Film & New Media
  • Theatre
  • Visual Arts
  • Interdisciplinary (multiple pathways)

Each pathway offers a flexible approach to learning and supports student creativity and artistic development.  Students will personalize their learning through a collaborative effort and process with an advisor that empowers the student to take ownership of their own learning.  This provides students with the skills and tools necessary to compete and thrive in a 21st century global economy.  Also available to all EHS students is the possibility of dual enrollment in college courses in the arts.
