An Exciting Future

The weather couldn’t dampen spirits on Friday, June 7th as The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new school building, which will be located in the arts and cultural district of South Bethlehem.

The ceremony took place on the building site located at 321 E. Third Street (at the corner of East Third and Polk Streets) in south Bethlehem. Dignitaries, school officials, parents, students, faculty members, local merchants and community members enjoyed this exciting ceremony.

The school launched a $6 million Capital Campaign in April this past year as part of the $27 million cost of the project. Funding for the project includes a $3 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant from the state of Pennsylvania, New Markets Tax Credits, and a twenty five year mortgage.

The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts is accepting contributions toward the $6 million capital campaign goal. If you would like more Information about naming opportunities and donations, please contact Debra Storm at 610-868-2971 ext. 154 or visit www.BuildAnArtsSchool.org
