Las Vegas Academy of the Arts is one of the best schools in the state of Nevada. Students are passionate about their majors and are well-prepared for life post-graduate. Students are surrounded by so much creativity and have access to hundreds of job, performance, and discovery opportunities. I could not have imagined spending the most important years of my education anywhere else! LVA is the way to go. Being in the heart of Las Vegas deepens the experience for students. They get to see their talents be applied to the real world. The teachers are so supportive and outgoing and the staff is always doing their best. PARENTS! There are also so many opportunities for parents to help out with school events.

As a transfer theatre major, I am head over heels for the Academy! Not only are the art courses rigorous, but the academic courses as well (with many honors and AP options). All in all, the Academy is a safe space for students to grow and learn new things; both within their major and in the classroom...
Being a senior, ready to graduate this upcoming semester in 2019, I have experienced what I believe to be the best experience a performing arts school can offer its students. Everything from the diversity to the emphasis on the music department and the outstanding academic opportunities provides a student such as myself a true image of what all schools, public and private, of how school should be everywhere!
