LCA, the Heart of the Arts, offers families a location near downtown's arts and cultural attractions. We are a highly-requested school where students study with and through the arts, positively impacting the academic achievement of all students. In addition to daily core academic and arts classes, we offer a two-way bilingual program and the opportunity to participate in our high-quality school performances. Our Resident Artist program has professionals working with students and staff. LCA is connected to our neighborhood. We invite families to call us for a tour of our beautifully decorated school building, covered inside and out with student artwork! Many of our students continue their arts education at Milwaukee High School of the Arts or attend our neighborhood high school, Riverside University High School.
