The Booker High School Visual and Performing Arts Program is the area’s most prestigious and widely recognized public pre-professional arts program, and admission is by audition only. Students must successfully complete an application to join any of our six departments — Dance, Film & Animation, Music, Production & Design, Theatre, or Visual Art. The application components include academic competence, strong recommendations by current teachers or mentors, and, of course, demonstration of skill in the discipline of choice. 

Accept’d applications for the 2024-2025 school year can be completed until 8/31/24. Acceptance will depend on availability in each program. Part of the application process includes student auditions. PLEASE NOTE – Teachers are off during the summer and will be holding auditions at their convenience which could possibly be in August.
