From Las Vegas Academy of the Arts

This school is different, and when you set foot on our campus, you will feel it. Each day we create a learning environment united by a passion for the transformative nature of the arts and inspired by opportunities to provide the depth, rigor, and intensity of artistic and academic instruction in preparation for post-secondary opportunities — whether pre-conservatory or university. At LVA, the arts are not an “elective.” They are a core and essential area of study. Students do not just perform or create — they live through their performance or creation. It is their existential voice and way of interacting with the world.

We pride ourselves in our ability to unite many lifestyles, beliefs through a culturally relevant curriculum. We strive to create classrooms where students are alive with collaboration, intellectual discourse, and problem-solving. We recognize that our students are unique thinkers and use the arts to harness the diversity of our young thinkers.
