The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts holds “Park and Circumstance” Bus Tour to celebrate with members … – The Valley Ledger

LEHIGH VALLEY, PA (June 8, 2020)—  On Monday, administrators of the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) embarked on a bus tour, called “Park and Circumstance”, to celebrate with members of its Class of 2020.   Since the school’s student body hails from more than 40 school districts across a ten-county region, the ability to visit senior students individually who reside in such a wide geographic region was not logistically possible, so the school arranged public park stops throughout the region.

This special initiative allowed administrators to celebrate these extraordinary students on the day that would have been their original graduation ceremony date (the school’s graduation ceremony which was originally scheduled for June 8, 2020, has been rescheduled to July 30-31).
Due to a fundraising effort initiated by the school in early May, funds were raised to send graduation boxes to seniors a few weeks ago. The boxes included their cap and gown, a yard banner, and more!  For “Park and Circumstance”, seniors and their families arrived to take pictures in front of the school bus with decorated caps, signs, and props.
Charter Arts is an audition-based, public charter school that provides a comprehensive curriculum for high school students, grades 9-12, who have a passion for the arts.  Students major in one of seven artistic areas: dance, instrumental music, literary arts, production arts, theatre, visual arts, or vocal music.
Charter Arts’ rigorous curriculum fosters both academic and artistic excellence for its students. The school’s impressive Future Ready PA Index ranking, Advanced Placement (AP) exam statistics, Keystone exam statistics, SAT scores, prestigious artistic accolades, and graduation rate are a testament to the outstanding education Charter Arts provides.
Charter Arts is proud to celebrate its eighteenth year as one of the most respected high schools for the arts in the nation.  Charter Arts was one of only 349 schools in the nation to be named a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education.  In 2020, the school earned the Title I Distinguished School designation for the fourth year in a row, placing it in the top 5 % of all Title I high schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Charter Arts is located at 321 East 3rd Street, Bethlehem PA 18015. For more information about Charter Arts, visit: or call 610-868-2971.
