The National Band Association has recognized the LVA Band Program as a Western Division Winner in the Blue Ribbon Programs of Excellence!

The LVA Wind Ensemble is a National Winner in the 2018 Mark of Excellence/National Wind Band Honors project. The Mark of Excellence is a national music competition that recognizes music programs and their ensembles for high standards in performance. This selection is from a pool of over 250 ensembles from 38 states.

Why LVA?

The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts is a nationally-recognized, award-winning magnet high school, serving approximately 1,700 students in Clark County, Nevada.

Located in the center of the Las Vegas High School Historical District, the Las Vegas Academy serves students from throughout the district in grades 9 through 12. Las Vegas Academy provides students the opportunity to pursue a conservatory in the areas of dance, music, theater, or visual arts within which majors are available in band, vocal music, dance, guitar, international studies, mariachi, orchestra, photography, piano, studio art, technical theatre, theatre, visual design, and World Jazz studies. The four conservatories, previously considered majors, were updated in 2017 as an effort to emphasize the academy’s focus on the arts. All students must meet a certain criteria for acceptance: completing an application, auditioning in their chosen performing major, preparing a portfolio, and/or taking an aptitude test.

Academically Challenging

The Academy offers students an intellectually challenging learning experience and empowers them with the skills and knowledge to compete successfully in the international workplace. Since opening, the school has placed at the top of the Clark County School District's academic programs with standardized test scores maintained at the 75th or better percentiles. Sixty percent of its graduating seniors enroll in four-year universities each year and another 10 percent enter junior colleges for a grand total of 70 percent enrollment at the university level.

Nationally Recognized

The Academy has received national, state, and local accolades, including those from the White House; Senators Reid, Bryan, and Ensign; former Governor Bob Miller and former Las Vegas Mayor Jan Jones. The Academy has received ten Grammy Signature School awards for excellence in music programs and has been recognized by the International Network of Performing and Visual Arts schools as a STAR school.

In 2000, the U.S. Department of Education recognized the Academy as a New American High School. In 2002, the U.S. Department of Education honored the Academy as a U.S. Blue Ribbon School, making it one out of only 17 high schools in the country to have received both prestigious awards.

In 2013, Las Vegas Academy of Arts received the Outstanding Arts School Award from the Arts Schools Network (ASN), the nation's largest professional membership organization of specialized arts schools. This award is presented to an Arts Schools Network member school with an outstanding record of overall excellence in the categories of faculty and student achievement, community recognition and involvement, arts and academics integration, curriculum innovations, continuing growth and development, and state and national recognition. The Academy was also desginated as a 2013 Magnet School of America School of Distinction.
