LA Academy believes that most students can become
good to excellent students within small class sizes, a rigorous curriculum, and
an environment that has high expectations of them. Originally, as an all boys academy, we provided an
environment that draws upon the natural talents and strengths of boys, such as creativeness,
perseverance, competiveness and camaraderie to enhance their learning
experience. We have now added an option for girls. Although we have mixed classes for Kindergarten thru 3rd Grade, we separate the girls and boys 4th thru 6th in order to stay true to our mission for boys, while affording girls the same the tailored environment.
LA Academy prevents and provides early intervention of
reading deficiencies of students. Advance their academic excellence through
unique reading, phonics, and other multi-sensory non-traditional teaching
programs that develop the "whole child" (spirit, soul and body).

Kindergarten through 2nd Grade
ABEKA reading program provides an advanced reading and
phonics program. Research has shown that
within a few months, most children receiving ABEKA
reading instruction are reading independently.
The ABEKA program has proven to be a
blend of excellence in academics and is built on Biblical truth.
Grades 3rd through 6th
The instructional program for grades 3rd-6th continues the educational foundation which was begun on the lower grade level. Research has shown that students using the ABEKA program consistently score higher than the national average on standardized achievement tests.
