Trumbull Arts Academy is an educational program dedicated to teaching artistic students using the performing arts as a primary teaching tool. Pupils in grades five and six attend the academy, instead of their home schools, and use the arts as a tool to learn mathematics, science, English and history. Professional visiting artists assist in teaching and integrating art, drama, dance, vocal and instrumental music. Trumbull County Educational Service Center administers the program for participating districts.
The Arts Academy is housed in the Lordstown Local School District's Middle School.
