New K-12 Campus

Here you will find information about our building project for LVA's new campus!



Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School, located in Bethlehem, PA is an accredited, non-profit, independent, public charter school serving over 1,800 students from 16 different school districts in the Lehigh Valley. LVARCS is one of only three fully authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools in the United States, that offer the full IB continuum of all four programmes to all students in grades K-12. Beginning with full-day Kindergarten and continuing through high school, LVARCS emphasizes inquiry-based learning and critical thinking to prepare students for higher education and the 21st century globalized environment. 

Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School’s lease for our current buildings will expire in August of 2023. The LVA Board of Trustees recognize that owning our own facility is significantly more cost effective, fiscally responsible, and sustainable in the long term. Charter Schools are funded through subsidies that follow the student. The operating budget remains the same whether LVARCS rents or owns its own facility.


The plan is to build a 200,000 sq ft building for approximately 1,950 students for the purpose of creating a comprehensive elementary and secondary school facility for a budget of $45 Million, and to move in at the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Our new forever home will provide a cost-effective, collaborative, safe space for our students to grow and be active members in our communities.
