Who We Are
As a Community
Luff Learning Fine Arts Academy is an educational company owned and operated by women with a vision of a different world – one where school is both fun AND it helps our children to become good people, creating a ripple effect. Our goal is to create a space where children learn empathy along with academics, and where they feel safe and supported to be their most authentic selves. We believe that children are intelligent and creative, and that they learn best when when given a structured environment that allows them to express their creativity – while learning about personal and social/professional boundaries.
At Luff, our motto is “Seek to Understand.” We believe in respecting kids and parents, in providing premium learning opportunities, and – most of all – we believe in a secular, science-based education that is tightly entwined with Fine Arts. We are committed to providing safe, diverse, and inclusive spaces for our students.

Sarah Mau, Lead Learner
Ms. Sarah left her job as a public school teacher during the pandemic. She dreamed of opening her own school, where she could wear stretchy pants and not be responsible for over 200 students at a time (not to mention all the other stresses and expectations placed on teachers). Now, she enjoys the freedom as a teacher to do what is best for each and every child (rather than following strict and senseless “district policies”) and is able to provide them the individual attention they need as she shares her love and enthusiasm for learning with them!
