La Academia’s dual language program offers content-based instruction in both Spanish and English and helps students develop deep awareness and appreciation of different cultures.  The project-based learning principles central to La Academia’s approach, integrated with school-wide mindfulness practices, ensure the development of character and leadership skills for all students.

Research shows that both native English speakers and native Spanish speakers in dual language programs perform as well as, or better than, peers educated in other types of academic programs on standardized tests.

We invite parents to learn more about how La Academia prepares children to become critical thinkers and multicultural stewards.
