A Different Approach to Public School
Julia Lee Performing Arts Academy is a tuition-free, public school. As a charter school, we have the flexibility to be more innovative while still being held accountable for student achievement.
Our goal is to develop students academically, artistically, and socially with a curriculum that integrates both the performing arts and college-preparatory academics.

Minimum Day - FridayMINIMUM DAYS HAVE BEEN MOVED TO FRIDAYS
Because our students missed a third of the school year, we're going to be doing something we call Friday Intensives.
That means that we're going to be doing small group instructions starting with attendance and Pledge of Allegiance at 8:00 AM. Then, at 8:30, students will begin their independent work while parents who need the extra help can attend Parent University during the same time.
