A Perfect After-School Program for Schools or communities looking to enrich students' lives.

LEAP® (Laity Educational Arts Program) is a comprehensive, engaging, and fun program designed to thoroughly study Acting, Art, Animation, Dance*, and Music. Classes are aligned directly to National Core Arts Standards for grades K-8. 


If LEAP® is not in your school and you want it, request it! Class sizes range from 5 minimum to 15 students maximum cap per class. Individual schools and/or administrators should call to discuss possible student funding options. ​ Schools engaging LEAP® are doing so because the individual monthly cost to parents is cost-prohibitive, and the population being served has no other means to experience the visual and performing arts at this level without the school or school district funding student participation.


LEAP® can service 100 - 120 students a week (per school) in a public or private educational setting after school on a school campus, activity center, and now online.  Designated rooms/spaces are required to teach.

  • The cost is $180,000 to $210,000 per year (per school), depending on the classes taught, the number of students served, and the program length. That's $166 - $194 per child per month. 

    • ​Costs cover all materials associated with each course taught.

  • The required minimum enrollment is 85 students per school. Maximum is 120.

  • Traditional Calendar Program runs nine months out of the year and 3 hours after school. Monday - Friday

  • Summer Program runs 25 days, 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM, five days a week. The cost range from $50,000 - $60,000​​

    • Nutrition Provided

    • Materials Provided

  • All service contracts are paid in advance.


To help increase the overall awareness of the visual and performing arts in schools and the tremendous role they play, Laity has developed LEAP®.  LEAP® is an after-school arts program designed to help augment and support teaching the arts during the traditional school day with a comprehensive content-based arts program. To reach this goal, LIA focuses on three key areas:

  • Skills – what the student learns from the instructor

  • Confidence - how the student executes what he/she has learned

  • Motivation – what the student is willing to learn next

LEAP Mission

LIA’s mission is to stimulate students' intellectual and artistic minds in dance, music, drama, and art through LEAP®. To achieve this mission, specific components have been put in place, along with the appropriate subject matter, rigor, meaningful content, goals of completion, and measurable objectives. Ongoing assessments are also implemented to measure the skills learned accurately.


LIA has used the National Core Arts Standards in Art, Media Arts, Dance*, Drama, and Music to maximize students’ experience. 

* The Dance program requires a stage or a dedicated room or space.
