The VCA mission is the education of our students in the art, craft, and technology of film, video and animation. The program offers intensive hands-on writing, pre-production, and production experience. We nurture individual talent and skills, and encourage students to become creative and thoughtful practitioners in the world of media.
Video Cinema Arts is one of seven departments parented by Denver School of the Arts – a comprehensive secondary arts magnet school (grades 6-12) in Denver Public Schools. In addition to a rigorous academic program, VCA students engage in learning about production organization and storytelling, film theory and application, production value and set etiquette, as well as the ins and outs of professional video editing software among many other film related techniques. VCA is committed to fostering a lifelong love of the arts through professional film education for the youth.
We are excited that you are considering DSA as a school choice for your child for the upcoming school year.

DSA is a wonderful magnet school that gives students the opportunity to pursue their artistic passions while also getting a quality academic education.
I credit DSA with shaping me into a compassionate student and individual with an intense appreciation of the artistic endeavor.
Denver School of the Arts is by far the best choice I could have made for high school. It has transformed me into an accepting and loving person through our LGBT community education and overall accepting community.
DSA staff and admin team really go the extra mile to assist the students with succeeding. My son continued to be inspired by the different art disciplines supported in this school.
Denver school of the arts is the best place to send a child that is interested in any form of art. It is a very special place that made me who I am, with the best possible academics and skills I needed to send me off to college.
This school has helped me become the best artist I could’ve ever be. This school has helped me grow and continuously find my passion for art in every day life.
Incredible school – I’ve made lifelong connections with friends and faculty, strong arts and academics have shaped my success.
