Vision and Mission


Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts is a dual-mission high school dedicated to providing aspiring artists and scholars with an academically rigorous pre-college curriculum and a comprehensive, four-year pre-conservatory arts program.


Our mission is to provide an exemplary arts and academic educational experience to students who have a passion for the arts, are culturally and socioeconomically diverse and hail from across all of Los Angeles. Situated on Grand Avenue, we offer the highest caliber of arts-integrated education and the opportunity to access the rich cultural vibrancy of the Los Angeles arts community.
