Admission to the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) is based solely on the audition process or portfolio review conducted by Charter Arts’ professional staff.  Our students represent twelve counties in eastern Pennsylvania and over forty-five separate school districts.

Students residing in Pennsylvania, entering 9th, 10th or 11th grade are eligible to audition in one of our seven artistic majors: Dance, theater, figure skating, instrumental music, visual art, literary arts, or vocal music.

Open House Dates for
2014/2015 School Year

Three Open House events are held prior to auditions  to allow families to tour our school, meet faculty and staff,  and learn about the rigorous artistic and academic program at Charter Arts.  We encourage all students who are interested in Charter Arts to attend an Open House event.   In addition to learning about the artistic majors and core academic curriculum, families will learn about the unique culture of the school.
