BETHLEHEM, PA— The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) will hold its annual Black History Month Show virtually this year on February 12, 20, and 27, 2021.
“Black History: Then, Now & Black Joy” is produced by the Charter Arts Black Student Union, and features students using their art to celebrate the excellence and beauty of the Black community as well as their personal experiences with systemic racism and oppression. Ultimately, it is a celebration of resilience and the ability to live with joy.
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 testaments to the outstanding education that 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.
