La Academia's Legacy Day

La Academia's Legacy Day

Legacy is about life and living. It's about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future. It is an interconnection across time, with a need for those who have come before us and a responsibility to those who come after us.  

A legacy may take many forms – children, grandchildren, a business, an idea, a book, a community, a home, or some piece of ourselves.  It's connected by stories, traditions, memories, hopes, and dreams. We are connected by the legacies passed down from those who came before us and the legacies we pass down to those who will come after us. 

On Monday, November 15th La Academia will celebrate Legacy Day. A day where we celebrate the birthday of Antonia Alonso. This year, Dr. Maria, Caridad, and Mercedes Alonso (Antonia Alonso’s daughters), will be our special guests. See below a description of all activities that will take place that day:

Date & Time: Monday, November 15, 2021 at 8:15AM-9:00AM

School Philosophy

1% Better Everyday

At La Academia, that is what we strive for- whether you are a student, teacher, staff, parent or board member, 1% better every day is the goal.  We look for small things we can improve on every day, in our personal, professional or educational lives, instead of focusing on major things to change. 

Mindfulness Matters

Mindfulness is the practice of cultivating focused awareness. Not only being aware of one’s sensations, but accepting what is.

Responsive Classrooms

The Responsive Classroom approach consists of a set of practices and strategies that build academic and social-emotional competencies.


Our community works to develop a culture of respect and collaboration based on our UNIDOS character traits (Unity-Never give up-Integrity-Discovery-Ownership-Success).

Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice is a holistic approach to behavior that focuses on repairing harm through inclusive processes that engage all stakeholders.
