VAPA Academy



    Welcome to Mt. Vernon Elementary Visual and Performing Arts Academy!

    We are a daily after-school program that specializes in instruction in the Visual and Performing Arts.  Students will have the opportunity to interact with their peers and teachers, move their bodies, write their own music, choreograph their own dances, write their own dramas, and create their own visual masterpieces.  We currently offer the following classes: Art, Arts and Crafts, Ballet 101, Zumba Kidz, Variety Dance, Mexican Folk, Drama, Singing, Songwriting, Music Technology, Homework Help, and Physical Fitness.  

    Our program is currently all virtual.  Classes meet via zoom  Monday through Friday.  Each student will have three different classes that last 6-7 weeks each.  At the end of each scheduling period, students perform and share their art in our Virtual Artist Showcase.  We hope you will join us in celebrating the hard work of our students.  Our next performance will be on April 15th, 2021.  

    We are still recruiting new artists and performers for this year.  If you are interested in joining us after school, please fill out the online application at (Spanish application  Once your application is received, you will receive a confirmation phone call with your student’s start date.  Students will be added to their teacher’s Google Classroom and will sign in to their Zoom class via the link provided.
