Longleaf School of the Arts
Celebrating 10 Years of Excellence
We already have 126 Applications!
Our application window to receive new students for the 2023-2024 school year is open! The window will close on Friday, March 3, 2023. Please inform any family that you believe would make a great fit for Longleaf School of the Arts.
All current 9th through 11th grade students do not need to reapply; they are automatically offered a seat. Each school year our waitlist has grown tremendously. If you are presently aware of any reason your 9th, 10th, or 11th grade student will not be returning next school year, please inform us by completing the following survey: https://forms.gle/BXumtphaKES8g4iF8. We would like to be prepared to transfer out records in a timely fashion as well as offer any additional seats that will be available to new families.
Scholastic Art and Writing Competition
LSA would like to congratulate the winners of this year's Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Our students won an astounding 18 awards this year including Gold Key for Portfolio, the highest achievement awarded to senior's portfolios; Gold Key recognition; Silver Key recognition; and Honorable Mention. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards were founded in 1923, and for nearly a century, have inspired bold ideas in creative teens throughout the country. This year's Gold Key winners will be considered for this year's National Competition where our work will be judged along with students from all regions in the United States for the possibility of Gold and Silver medallions.
