The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts is a comprehensive four-year high school that provides students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in college or the workplace.
We believe that the relationship between what students learn in their core and arts courses is symbiotic. Creating art requires mastering many of the same intellectual ability, work habits and life skills required for academic success. As a result, our students excel both artistically and academically.
Charter Arts believes that experience in the arts teaches students skills that they need to be successful learners. The premise of the Charter Arts integrated curriculum is that students who are involved in the arts develop fundamental cognitive capacities that improve their thinking and problem-solving abilities.
What we have found is that students who are passionately involved in their learning experience, and are challenged to be their best, are excited to be in school and work harder to succeed.
Some of our students will choose the arts as their profession, but many others will apply the skills learned at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts to other varied and diverse fields. Regardless, they all will benefit from their exposure to the arts and the development of their creative intelligence.
