CAFA Inc. offers sincerest appreciation for the patience and persistence demonstrated by the families and faculty of our four schools during these difficult times.
The 2020-2021 school year began August 6th with online/distance learning. When schools open for in-person learning students enrolled in the four CAFA Inc. schools will be given the option to return to the classroom or continue with distance learning.
Students engaged in online or remote learning who need a place to go during the day will be provided educational and support services on campus. This includes access to the internet to participate in their courses, lunch service, and support for technical and educational questions.
Please open the links below for information on school opening and safety protocols. We look forward to welcoming former and new students for an exciting new year.
The health and well-being of our students and staff continues to be a top priority. We will continue to work directly with state and local public health officials to stay updated regarding health advisories and to take all cautionary measures.

Welcome Students, Parents and Community
Learning Foundation and Performing Arts Schools offer a dynamic performing arts program balanced with rigorous academics and enhanced with a challenging sports program. These programs have been proven successful since the inception of the first school in 2003. A school was needed to give students without financial means a chance to experience areas of the performing arts that might be overlooked in other school curriculum. Our performing arts department offers programs that expose each child, K-12, to the arts. The LFPA student body comes from all over the East Valley due to our unique blend of arts and academics.
Students have the opportunity to follow their passion with elective choices that include musical theater, dance, voice, drama, guitar, piano, art, ceramics, foreign language, fitness, sports, creative writing, and many other courses. The schools display trophies won in performing competitions in Arizona, California, New York and Florida. The high school displays competition trophies won in Basketball, Ultimate Frisbee, and Cheer.
The students produce full stage productions each year where they not only perform but also may be involved in other areas of producing a show such as staging, scenery, direction, filming and writing. The mix of a traditional school with an emphasis on performing arts and enhanced with competitive sports creates a unique style of education.
Our Vision for Learning Foundation and Performing Arts schools is to provide a well-rounded, rigorous academic environment combined with a dynamic performing arts program that exposes each child, K-12, to the arts. LFPA sets high standards in order to prepare our students to become lifelong learners who lead productive and successful lives.
To this end, our Mission is devoted to scholarly learning and inspiring performing arts that embrace our entire community. We strive to take our students to the highest level of personal academic achievement and fine arts accomplishment by basing our instructional system on research, standards, and best practice in both areas. Through curriculum and methods of delivery in academic content areas, we will impart the academic skills that will be required of our students for success in life. Through our curriculum in fine arts, we will impart self-esteem, self discipline, cooperation, self-motivation and social skills necessary for success in life.
