Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Cs5

We love LVA and the staff. LVA prepares children for real world scenarios and offers a progressive international baccalaureate program. We are pleased with the curriculum and quality of work he brings homes each day. Th PTO is very involved and helps parents who work FT. My son is in track and baseball through our local school program and church. I know we made the right decision to send our son to LVA and we are thankful to be part of the LVA community.
Lehigh Valley Academy Regional CS is a wonderful school that provides top of the line education. They continue to inspire the parent teacher environment for the best possible outcome for the students. They continue to inspire the children to always do their best!
As others have commented, do NOT enroll your child here if you have an IEP. This school will go to great lengths to avoid providing any services. We have received nothing but difficulties from the school administration. Thank goodness we moved to a good school district so we can get our kids out of this place. Oh, and don't bother if your kid is gifted either, they apparently don't want to provide those services either.
My son started 5 grade this school year at LVA and we have only good things to say. My son had a difficult 2 month adjusting to the new school which it's normal coming from a private Catholic School. I noticed my son has become more independent and more efficient since he started at LVA. Math and Reading levels are higher then the private school my son used to go to. He likes gym, Spanish, Art, and band lessons. Teachers are young and well prepared with latest technology and he loves the Eno board in the classroom. I can't be more happy to have my son attending LVA.
My son has been at this school for 3 years, beginning in kindergarten. They have an all day kindergarten program, which you can't find in many public schools. They begin their day earlier then public schools and go longer at the end of the day as well. They begin a second language in kindergarten. They offer many classes you can't find at a public school, or public schools are taking away funding. LVA offers drama, music, art and Chinese. You must be an involved parent!! I love the education that my son has received thus far and would recommend anyone to enroll their child.
My son loves this school and his teachers. He has been there since kg and is now in 2nd grade and we have seen nothing but positive and constant growth in him and his studies. He excels in his class, and we know his school environment aides and encourages that.
US News and World Report ranked LVA as the second highest rated high school in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I am a parent of a senior at LVA who is getting courted by an extreme amount of colleges. Do your own homework on LVA and you will find a community of involved parents, students and teachers. The "home" district of LVA's charter is the Bethlehem area school district which to my knowledge is a horrible district. Some parents whose children are not "making it" in the BASD have first choice in the lottery system to send their kids to LVA. When their children don't fit into the advanced academics and the parental involvement approach, they come out here and trash what is a highly rated school. Please do your due diligence before registering your child.
I have 4 kids in LVA and it been great. some kids don't make it there because is very hard for some of them. but is a place that build caricatures on kids, to build professionals , is no a place to baby seat your kids! it's a learning place. i know that the only time people seat to write a review is went they are mad with some one. I do it because LVA is a great school, and I have four excellent students to back me up!
It is a great place for kids to learn! Parent have to become part of the kids education! work with them on school work, special projects and many other things. Don't expect the teacher to do everything if the kid fail is because there is not a parent involve in the kids school life. Kids are smart and willing, is up to you mom and dad !
