League Academy of Communication Arts is committed to serving all students through the implementation of our school vision, which is to prepare students to become lifelong learners and contributing members of society through rigorous, arts-focused, standards-based instruction. In addition to our vision, our school operates under the Capturing Kids’ Hearts philosophy.
