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.
