Welcome to Lava Heights Academy
The Lava Heights campus is inspired by the spirit of Tuscan Artistry. Students enjoy a spacious, safe, contained environment that nurtures the soul.
Each space on the campus has been carefully created to promote an atmosphere that enhances artistic expression while prioritizing safety and health. The campus includes comfortable and secure dormitories, classrooms, rehearsal rooms, and performance spaces – including a black-box theater.
Lava Heights Academy is nestled among the black lava rock bluffs at the gateway to Zion National Park. Each year people from all over the world come to Southern Utah to see the scenic wonders we enjoy daily.
Situated at the base of black lava rock bluffs, our campus has beautiful views of the red, white, and blue rock formations of the Pine Valley Mountain to the west, and the red dunes and sandstone ledges of Sand Hollow to the south.
The mild climate of Southern Utah provides us with many opportunities to be outdoors – on campus as well as visiting the surrounding areas on field trips, hikes, and other activities that really engage our youth.
Our buildings are designed to be comfortable as well as functional – designed from the ground up as a therapeutic environment for healing through the arts.
