Visions Performing Arts College Prep is a V.I.L.A.G.E. that invites you in! With a unique model, we are preparing student performers to execute the 3 C's, continue, complete and compete. Our Mama's and Baba's facilitate an inquiry-based, student led, performing arts educational experience.
For over 15 years, VPAC has served the Greater Denver Metro Area in performing arts education to underserved students. Being completely supported by the community, VPAC has impacted over 2,000 students and produced over 20 productions. In year 10, students and families demanded that we expand to a full fledge 6th-12th grade school. We piloted our model for 5 years and in 2019, VPAC was approved by The Colorado Charter School Institute.
VPAC is an inquiry-based performing arts school. Through years of piloting, VPAC has closed academic AND artistic gaps in students. Utilizing research-proven curriculum, students are encouraged to be curious to master core content. With a whole-child approach, the VPAC Village supports students to be their authentic selves with constant affirmations of their inner genius.

VPAC will contribute to the transformation of education, future workforce and arts and entertainment industries by cultivating students who will be able to compete at high levels.
