Celebrating 10 Years of Excellence
One More Huge Reason to Celebrate . . .
Congratulations Finn McLaughlin, Mrs. Franklin, and our Visual Arts Department!
Advisory and Study Hall Attendance
Students, please report to the teacher in your advisory and study hall in order to prevent being marked absent. The teacher will create an EHall Pass which will give you permission to leave the classroom if you were asked to report to another teacher, counselor, or administrator during one of those time periods.
Attention: All LSA Parent/Guardian who are Doctors or Nurses
As we continue to add afterschool and outside experiences for our students, we would like to have additional safety measures in place. We would like to have a list of all doctors and nurses who are a part of our school community. The goal would be to have at least on person as a volunteer for medical staff.
Hispanic Heritage Month
LSA began observing National Hispanic Heritage Month Thursday, September 15. We are celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America! Thank you to our students in our Spanish classes for an excellent job representing their favorite Hispanic contributor in the Latino Walk of Fame! Mrs. Morice and Mrs. Neeb did a great job planning the two-day event! We will have our annual celebration event on September 29! The entire school community is invited to participate in the event!

Board Member - Search
Longleaf School of the Arts (LSA) is the first charter high school in Raleigh, NC that integrates academics with the fine and performing arts. We are a college preparatory school that prepares students for university rigor while allowing them to explore their creative and artistic side. Our Mission: Longleaf School of the Arts will develop students into confident, responsible, and successful contributors in college, career, and community through mentorship and a challenging curriculum that integrates academics and the fine arts. To achieve its mission, the LSA Board of Directors is responsible for providing governance, and oversight, ensuring compliance. Which in turns enables the growth and development of the school including excellence in academic performance, fiscal responsibility, managed growth, and clear leadership.
The LSA Board is currently recruiting new directors. We are particularly interested in volunteers with expertise in finance, law, arts, education, and/or management. It is a priority of the board to be well-balanced and to represent the diversity of our community. We encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds to consider board membership. We welcome anyone who is interested in serving on the LSA Board to first attend at least one board meetings prior to submitting a letter of interest and resume. Board of Director Candidates will need to pass a background check and if selected for consideration, participate in an interview. Board members must commit to reviewing board materials and attend monthly board meetings, which are typically held the 4th Monday of each month. Board terms are at least 3 years.
Board meetings are posted on the LSA website. After attending at least one board meeting, please submit a resume and a letter of interest with email subject line BOARD OF DIRECTOR CANDIDATE to email@example.com.
