About Us

The Lancaster Academy for the Performing Arts is a Christian educational and performance arts academy.

From humble beginnings with several homeschool families in 1994, the Academy approaches its 30th year of excellence. We are blessed to be able to serve over 230 young people in grades from 1-12 from homeschooling families in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and the surrounding area. Over the years, our students have performed over four hundred musical concerts, including Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Coronation Mass and many other fine choral pieces, and produced over forty theatrical productions, including favorites like The Sound of Music, Music Man, King & I, Anne of Green Gables, Cinderella, The Wizard of Oz, and The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

With a focus on fostering creativity, confidence, and teamwork, our programs provide a welcoming and supportive environment for children and teenagers to explore their talents and grow as performers. Our experienced instructors and directors work closely with young performers to help them develop their skills and build a strong foundation in the performing arts.

Whether your child dreams of singing in a choir, playing in an orchestra, or taking the stage as an actor, our performing arts organization has the resources and expertise to help them achieve their goals. Join us for an upcoming production or class and discover the joy of the performing arts!
