Audition Dates & Requests

The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) is a regional charter high school attracting students from a ten-county region in eastern Pennsylvania.  Charter Arts is a public charter school, funded by Pennsylvania taxpayer dollars. Students audition for acceptance into one of seven artistic majors: dance, instrumental music, literary arts, production arts, theatre, visual arts,  and vocal music.

Charter Arts’ unique arts-centered curriculum pairs pre-professional training in the arts with a rigorous core academic program. Students are accepted based only upon their artistic talent and potential.  Read the Board Policy regarding Admission of Students. 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.
