We Educate The Future

Booker is home to the Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) program, which offers rigorous, pre-professional training in the arts in five disciplines: Dance, Digital Film & Motion Design, Music, Theatre, and Visual Art. Some notable graduates of the VPA are American Idol semifinalist and Broadway star Syesha Mercado, Oscar-winning film make-up artist Bill Corso, and NBC’s “Chicago Fire” star Charlie Barnett.
