Dr. Lubben has spend over 23 years actively involved in the charter school movement. This began in 1996 when the charter school law was under consideration in Pennsylvania. He spoke before the Senate Education Committee prior to the passage of the law in 1997.
It took Dr. Lubben from 1997 to 2003 to open his first arts-focused charter school. The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Performing Arts (LVPA) subsequently became known as “Charter Arts” and was opened in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The current school now occupies a new building on Bethlehem’s South Side, serves over 500 students and is receiving state and national “plaudits”. He served as the school’s superintendent from 2003-2010, before stepping down.
He created TLC Arts LLC in 2013 as a consulting organization to serve in the promulgation of his varied models. Dr. Lubben now has a team of experienced educators with over 100 years of combined experience in the charter school movement.
