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.
