Public Charter TK-7th

We Are Julia Lee Performing Arts Academy

We are a public charter school (grades TK - 7) serving students of Lake Elsinore and surrounding cities. Our founder was inspired by her great aunt's (Julia Lee) musical success and her own desire to combine top-quality education with the arts. With the lead of our highly experienced principal, our caring staff is committed to providing an educational experience that encourages student success.

​Extended School Closure

SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond released a statement Tuesday regarding the 2019-20 school year.

“Due to the current safety concerns and needs for ongoing social distancing, it currently appears that our students will not be able to return to school campuses before the end of the school year. In order to allow schools to plan accordingly, and to ensure that learning still occurs until the end of the school year, we are suggesting that schools plan and prepare to have their curriculum carried out through a distance learning model. This is in no way to suggest that school is over for the year, but rather we should put all efforts into strengthening our delivery of education through distance learning.

UPDATE: AMENDED public health order posted April 1, 2020, Julia Lee Performing Arts Academy and all Riverside County school closures will be extended through June 19, 2020, which supersedes a prior order of March 17, 2020.

Julia Lee Performing Arts Academy will continue to offer lunch and breakfast for the next day during our GRAB AND GO (Drive up or walk-up) meal service Monday-Friday, 10:00 am-12:00 pm. We will continue with our Distance Learning packets and online instruction as we have done during these last few weeks. Please contact us if you have any questions. Information will be made available regarding registration for the 2020-2021 school year.

Stay safe!
