"Where Students Excel"

K thru 6th Grade

Boys & Girls Academy 

OUR VISION and OUR MISSION (see below)

Our Vision:

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.

Our Mission:

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).

We Offer:

  • Academic Excellence
  • Small Class Sizes
  • Multi-sensory Teaching Techniques
  • Specialized Reading Program usin

  • Teaching with Technology
  • Individual/Small Group Assistance
  • Multi-Level Learning Environment

How Are We Different?

LA Academy provides the unique benefit of very small class sizes and multisensory teaching techniques that exercise the three main types of learning (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic) so that “No Boy Is Left Behind.”

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.

LA Academy will accomplish its mission by creating community-based learning centers with the following attributes:

· Multi-sensory Teaching Environment

· Phonics-Based Reading Foundation

· Student/Teacher Ratio (Max.12:1)

· Bible-Based Curriculum

· Technology and Computer Skills

· Character Development

· Cultural Arts – creative expressions

· Journaling and Writing

· Caring and Dedicated Staff

· Mentoring

LA Academy believes the small learning center and class size is essential to the success for both students and the LA Academy staff, because it produces minimal distractions and stress.
