Who We Are

The Highland Performing Arts Boosters are a member network of music and theater enthusiasts, parents, students, and community partners who support performing arts in Highland, Indiana. Membership is open to the everyone.  There are no membership dues so joining is totally FREE.

The organization needs your help so please register to become a member today. Not only is it quite fulfilling to help students succeed in their musical and singing talents, but parents of current students that elect to participate in Booster related activities are able to earn money toward their child’s accounts.

What We Do

Booster Club members serve as the performing arts program’s advocate in the community. Each year, the Booster Club sponsors multiple events which feature student performances. The Booster Club also facilitates sales of spirit wear.

The organization is responsible for hosting many choral events, such as concerts, solo/ensemble contests, field and overnight trips, the Madrigal Feaste, performances at Walt Disney World in Florida, and the High School Grand March for prom. In addition, scholarships are provided to college bound students through various fundraising efforts.

How We Operate

The Booster Club is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are elected annually from parents of current students at Highland High School and Highland Middle School. The Boosters are very active at the High School level as well as the Middle School. Meetings are held monthly and are open to all adults.

Congratulations to the members of the choir who participated in State Solo and Ensemble Contest this weekend. We had 89 students represent Highland this weekend across 46 events. We had 13 events earn silver medals and 33 Gold events with 9 of those golds being honored with distinction classification which means they received perfect or near perfect scores. Those receiving Gold medals with Distinction include: Conner Gierymski, Erin Perry, Kaitlyn Tiemens, Kayla Massa, Nate Taillon, The Wagner Ensemble, The Fanning Ensemble and with perfect scores Morgan Greathouse and the ReMarkable ensemble. The ReMarkable ensemble is Highland's third attempt to acquire a gold on this particular song so it is vindication for this ensemble to not only receive Gold but a perfect score. Congratulations to everyone! Markley is proud of you! ... See MoreSee Less
