A welcomed addition to the West Little Rock community, the West Little Rock Performing Arts Academy strives to become a leader in the development of arts-based programs that serves the families of our community. Our Mission is to make a difference in the lives of our students, audience, and our community through the power and beauty of the Arts.

The WLR Performing Arts Academy, under the leadership of professional musicians and artists, will provide a definitive standard of excellence in curriculum design, assessment, performance training, and arts-based social programs.
