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.
