Vision and Mission


Art is a means of communication that can transcend language, borders, and time.  Exploring the world through art offers students a unique vista on their own lives and their capacity for self-realization.  Our young artists view themselves as citizens of the world who strive to understand themselves and embrace our pluralistic society.  Our college preparatory interdisciplinary study of the humanities and visual arts empowers students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and awareness needed to advocate for innovation and change in their communities and around the world.  When students leave the School for the Visual Arts and Humanities they will be well-prepared to succeed in a program of higher education and confront all challenges with the creative and sensitive spirit needed to make a lasting difference in their own lives and the globalized world.



The mission of the School for the Visual Arts and Humanities is to support students in reaching their creative and academic potential through a rigorous and relevant college-preparatory education anchored in the Arts. Students will leave our school inspired and equipped to contribute positively to their community and world.
