Welcome

The underlying principle in all instruction at La Mesa Arts Academy (LMAAC) is an emphasis on character and leadership.

LMAAC is proud to offer our students a rigorous and meaningful academic program infused with the arts, featuring a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, standards-based arts curriculum that promotes character, community involvement and leadership skills. At LMAAC, a specialist teaches every child in core academic, elective and physical education classes. At LMAAC, students receive foundational coursework in the arts that serves as a prerequisite for future conservatory studies.

We are proud partners with many community organizations including Arms Wide Open Productions and San Diego Youth Services.

Enrollment is open to students throughout the LMSV attendance area as well as those from outlying communities in greater San Diego County. An enrollment packet must be completed for students wishing to attend.

2021-2022 Lottery Results


First and foremost, we are SO grateful for your interest and enthusiasm for LMAAC!

Attached you will find the lottery numbers of students who have preliminary acceptance for the 2021-2022 school year and those that are on the waitlist.  Lottery results are preliminary pending a review of transfer application criteria (for students whose school of residence is not LMAAC) and program capacity (students with IEPs). If LMAAC is not your school of residence, your signed transfer form will be your formal notification of acceptance. If LMAAC is your home school for (7th/8th grade ONLY) then no transfer paperwork is needed.

Green: Preliminary Acceptance
Yellow: Waitlist

At this time, we need to confirm interest for students who have been accepted through the lottery to hold your spot. Those on the preliminary acceptance list will have until January 17th at 3:00pm to confirm, in writing: 

  • “Yes, please move my child to the Pending Enrollment List.”

If we do not receive your confirmation by then, we will begin accessing the waitlist. When replying, please be sure to include your student's name, incoming grade and lottery number. You may drop off a written note of acceptance to our front office or you may confirm via email to alysia.rood@lmsvschools.org. We will not accept verbal confirmations. 

Once on the pending enrollment list, we will be in touch regarding registration paperwork (only needed for students not currently attending a LMSV district school), auditions for classes,  and other important dates for the 21-22 school year.  If your contact information changes (i.e. your email or phone number), please notify us immediately.  

If you are on the waitlist, we will continue to monitor our numbers and will contact you immediately if we have an opening. Please do not call us for waitlist updates; we will contact you as spots become available.  Please be patient and keep in mind that we will continue to access our waitlist for the first weeks of school.

Again, on behalf of our staff, thank you so very much for your interest in LMAAC. We are honored that you would take the time to tour and fill out the application for enrollment. Please DO apply again next year! We wish we could take all of you.
