The Arts are Alive at Vicksburg Schools!
While our schools have many strengths, Vicksburg is known throughout the region as a "Fine Arts District". Beyond its award-winning music programs in Band and Choir, you will find strong programs in Video Production, 2-D and 3-D art, Photography and Drama. With the resources of a veteran staff and the 1,500 seat Performing Arts Center (PAC), VCS has few rivals in the strength of its arts focus.
The emphasis on the arts begins at elementary school, with the music and art classes and multiple presentations by each building at the PAC. The middle school puts on annual productions and has a full-blown band and choir program.
