School of the Arts

Enrichment through the Arts

Our School of the Arts was born out of a passion for all areas of the arts and a commitment to see Lamplighter students grow in all areas of their lives. Here are Lamplighter, students can be assured they will be learning from a skilled teacher who has mastered their field of study and arrived at a level of true excellence. Now those after school lessons can be part of the school day, leaving more time after school hours for family and other activities.
