The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts appreciates and accepts everyone through artistic expression. Students are able to grasp the concept of collaboration and hard work through vigorous learning both in their major and academically. Teachers and admisnistration strive for each and every student to feel accepted and safe. There is an amazing trust between students and teachers which allows independence and freedom on both parties. The adults are very understanding of stressful situations and will work with the student closely to ensure growth. I have learned so much in my short amount of time here and am excited to go to school each morning. I'm so glad I go here!

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!
