Great for the most part! I love my teachers and classes and I really feel like I’ve learned a lot so far. The academics are organized really well and everyone is so willing to help you out so you can succeed. Socially speaking there’re definitely cliques and hierarchies but it doesn’t take long to find your niche. If you’re willing to take the chance, I’d go for it! It’s a great school overall.

My experience at Charter Arts made me the person I am today. I was a vocal music major from 2012-2016. Charter Arts is an art-centric learning experience, where we learn real-world skills, and we perfect our craft. The academics were fantastic, and Charts has some of the highest ACT scores in Pennsylvania. I love this school, and I would go back and do it all over again any day!
Charter Arts is, without a doubt, the best possible option for any student who takes their career in the arts very seriously. The school has a rigorous academic pursuit, paired with challenging artistic study. The students and teachers are always giving everything they have, and the culture of the school is beyond phenomenal. The students are unique, talented, and friendly. The teachers are willing to go above and beyond in order to help students. Best choice for any student who is art oriented.
