Welcome back to school for the 2014-2015 school year!

I am honored to be starting my fifth year at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts as the school enters its twelfth year!  Since opening in 2003, Charter Arts has established itself as one of the most respected high schools for the arts in Pennsylvania as well as the country.  This year, we welcome students from 46 school districts from throughout southeastern Pennsylvania!

Every day, the mission at Charter Arts is to ensure that every student who walks through our doors will become a successful adult.  Hopefully, the goal of everyone involved in the education of young people is to have a nation of successful students. What we have learned at Charter Arts is that all kids learn differently.  Students who choose Charter Arts exhibit a passion for the arts that drives them in their learning.

I appreciate the courage of each one of our freshman students who made the decision to work hard for an audition to come to a school different from the environment they experienced during the prior eight years of their K-12 education.  Everyone at Charter Arts will work to make the experience of every student the best and most successful it can be.

As an innovative and community-centered organization, Charter Arts continually seeks to expand our vision and broaden our scope, creating opportunities for students everywhere, while offering our audiences experiences in and through the creative and performing arts that highlight student learning.  We hope you will join us for one of over seventy performances that will be offered in the upcoming school year.  From Godfrey Daniels to SteelStacks to our own Black Box Theatre, Charter Arts students will experience and entertain the community.

I appreciate your interest in what we do, your support of our students and the your ongoing involvement in the success of our students.
