The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) is a regional charter high school attracting students from a ten-county area in eastern Pennsylvania. Students audition for acceptance into one of eight arts majors: dance, figure skating, instrumental music, literary arts, production desgin, theatre, visual art, and vocal music.

Charter Arts’ unique arts centered curriculum pairs pre-professional training in the artistic major with a rigorous core academic program. Students study their art discipline for half of the school day and a full academic schedule during the second half of the day. All auditions to attend Charter Arts are academically blind and students are accepted based only upon their artistic talent and potential. What makes Charter Arts unique, and is a key component in the success of our students, is the arts emphasis within the curriculum. Charter Arts has created a culture of high achievement across all art and core disciplines. Our creative students think and learn differently.


Each artistic major at Charter Arts has its own unique set of audition requirements.

These parameters are meant to help the prospective student fully prepare for a successful audition at Charter Arts.
