Students & Parents
Welcome, Students, Parents and Guardians
There are many resources available to help you succeed at LVA. Our Administrative Team is supported by four offices, in addition to the Principal's Office. Please see below for a detailed description of each, and links to information on technology, activities and learning resources.
The Curriculum Office handles course offerings, student schedules, the master teaching schedule and registration. The curriculum offered at LVA prepares students for almost any post-secondary path a graduate may wish to pursue. LVA offers expanded opportunities for students to earn high school credits and begin work towards a undergraduate degree with courses offered by the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) and the University of Nevada - Las Vegas through Dual Enrollment, Career and Technical Education (CTE), and Advanced Placement (AP).
The emphasis of the Counseling Office is to implement a comprehensive guidance and counseling program according to the State of Nevada's School Counseling Program Student Standards and the national standards set forth by the American School Counselors Association (ASCA). The counselor's emphasis is on promoting and enhancing academic achievement, career development, and social/emotional growth for all students. The program includes individual student planning, responsive services, and system supports within the guidance curriculum.
Character & Compliance
The Office of Character & Compliance primarily oversees student behavior and attendance. Additionally, we also provide student DMV attendance certification. Students can request a parking pass or an assigned locker through the C&C office.
Communications & Student Achievement
The Office of Communications & Student Achievement focuses on documenting student success on all required CCSD and State Testing. Tests administered through the office include Advanced Placement Exams, Science Criterion Reference Exams, ACT, PSAT/NMSQT, English Language assessments, Nevada Seal of Biliteracy, Career & Technical Education Course End of Program, and Workplace Readiness Exams. The communications side of the office is responsible for gathering and disseminating information to all stakeholders through daily student announcements, Canvas announcements, LVA Weekly Update communications to parents and students, and faculty updates.
Infinite Campus is your portal to up-to-date information on grades, assignments, attendance announcements, schedules and more.
Canvas is a course management system that supports online learning and teaching. It is widely used for instruction and teacher-to-student communication, and is key to LVA's progressive approach in preparing students for the modern university system and work environments.
Activities & Operations
The Office of Activities & Operations is responsible for all school events, clubs, travel, and performances. We also plan graduation, coordinate theater rentals, and assist students in making their activities visions come to fruition. In addition, we work with CCSD to ensure - to the best of our abilities - that LVA facilities are functional and serve the needs of our students, staff and families.
Equity and Diversity
The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts Community is committed to helping families during these difficult times. Providing resources, both academically and within the community, is part of that commitment. This Community Services section is a resource for our students, parents, and the community.
