La Academia's Parent University

Did you know that La Academia has an initiative called Parent University? Parent University is a community collaborative to help families become full partners in their children’s education. Throughout the year, La Academia partners with community agencies and organizations to offer free information sessions, family events and activities that equip families with new, or additional skills, knowledge, and resources. Parent University offers free, informative content to parents, guardians and caregivers that is aligned to the following four areas:

*Parenting Awareness – Workshops in this area explore how you can support your child’s academic opportunities at La Academia, as well as opportunities to discuss challenges your children may face during these unprecedented times in education.

*Helping Your Child Learn in the 21st Century – Workshops in this area are designed to empower you to raise confident, educated children ready for the 21st century.

*Health and Wellness – These offerings provide information and activities to help families build healthy lifestyles – physically, socially and emotionally.

*Personal Growth and Development – These workshops are designed to help you grow personally and professionally, as parents/guardians, so you can become the most effective advocate for your child(ren).

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.
