On Thursday, March 31st, the Arkansas State Board of Education approved LISA Academy’s amendment request to open an elementary school in West Little Rock for fall of 2016. In addition, the enrollment cap increase was approved, which will open more seats in grades 6-12. LISA Academy is very excited to move forward with plans to offer quality educational choice for families in Little Rock. Interested families may apply on-line at http://www.lisaacademy.org for seats in grades K-12.
