Mission Statement

The Austin School for the Performing and Visual Arts is a place for students who want to pursue academic and artistic excellence where they will be honored by passionate, inspiring teachers while celebrating creativity, community and service.

  • We believe that creative self-expression has a profound effect on the intellectual growth of children, developing a standard of excellence and self-confidence that will affect all aspects of their lives.
  • We believe in the unique ability of the arts to capture imaginations, motivate excellence, and illuminate the world from a new perspective.
  • We believe that all talented children in the Austin area should be supported in following their performing and visual arts dreams regardless of their socio-economic status.
  • We believe that motivating our children to participate in performing and visual arts will grow support for the arts in Austin and improve our community as a whole.
  • We believe that our school exists for the children. ASPVA is a place that affirms the worth of all students and incorporates parents and the community as intrinsic components of education.
