Who We Are


Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School (LVA), located in Bethlehem, PA is an accredited public charter school that serves 1,800 students from 16 different school districts in the Lehigh Valley.  

LVA is the only fully authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Pennsylvania that offers an IB continuum to all students in grades K-12. The IB is a research-based way of learning and teaching that incorporates state standards. In IB World Schools students engage in inquiry, action and reflection on locally and globally significant issues across the curriculum. The assessments are internationally benchmarked, allowing graduates to continue their studies anywhere in the world.

Beginning with full-day kindergarten and continuing through a student’s senior year, Lehigh Valley Academy emphasizes inquiry-based learning and critical thinking to prepare a student for higher education and the 21st century globalized environment. LVA is also committed to developing young people into active, knowledgeable and caring members of a world-wide, diverse society.
