New HS Elevation RenderingWelcome to our website

    Our Vision for  Learning Foundation and Performing Arts schools is to provide a well rounded, rigorous academic environment combined with a dynamic performing arts program that exposes each child, K-12, to the arts.  LFPA sets high standards in order to prepare our students to become lifelong learners who lead productive and successful lives.

      To this end, our Mission is devoted to scholarly learning and inspiring performing arts that embrace our entire community.  We strive to take our students to the highest level of personal academic achievement and fine arts accomplishment by basing our instructional system on research, standards, and best practice in both areas.  Through curriculum and methods of delivery in academic content areas, we will impart the academic skills that will be required of our students for success in life.  Through our curriculum in fine arts, we will impart self-esteem, self discipline, cooperation, self-motivation and social skills necessary for success in life.

      I assisted in starting one of the first Charter Schools in Arizona in 1995.  I am a businesswoman with over 20 years of expertise in charter school management.  My experience, dedication, excellent staff and Highly Qualified teachers have created the perfect balance in establishing and maintaining the Learning Foundation and Performing Arts Schools.
