Visual and Performing Arts Academy (VaPA) Overview

Welcome to the Visual and Performing Arts Academy (VaPA)

With a strong belief and commitment to education, the VaPA faculty are not only instructors, but also serve as living examples of artists themselves with a strong belief and commitment, to being the student's life-long mentor.
Students of the VaPA improve their motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork, so that they can connect  more deeply to the other core disciplines such as their Social Science and Language Arts classes.
VaPA members also will have opportunities to experience off-campus study trips related to their STRANDS of interest. 
The VaPA STRANDS are designed to discover the student's unique "voices" as expressive and creative artists. VaPA seniors will not only have their LMHS diploma but also VaPA recognition at their graduation. When they leave LMHS they will be prepared with their own VaPA Personal Portfolio suitable for pursuing and achieving college and/or career sucess.
The five (5) VaPA STRANDS at LMHS:
  • Visual Art
  • Instrumental Art
  • Vocal Music
  • Dance
  • Theater
