About Vancouver School of Arts and Academics

Vancouver School of Arts and Academics (VSAA) is a comprehensive middle school and high school program where the arts are not just part of the curriculum, they are at the heart of the educational experience.

At VSAA, every student in grades six through twelve will experience a wide array of artistic opportunities. In addition to studying science, math, social studies and English our students have the chance to explore each area of the arts. As students progress into high school, they have the opportunity to dive deeper into their chosen art forms, to develop their skills. VSAA teachers are practicing artists who can advise on the creative process.
