The Las Américas ASPIRA Academy (LAAA) is the direct outgrowth of the mission of ASPIRA of Delaware, Inc., an associate office of the national ASPIRA Association. ASPIRA, since its start with ASPIRA New York, has had over fifty years of experience creating and implementing formal and informal education programs that build up youth self-esteem, cultural awareness, and leadership abilities.
At Las Américas ASPIRA Academy, we are focused on providing our students with a positive learning experience. Their learning goes beyond content knowledge and includes the richness of bilingualism, biliteracy and biculturalism. Our students are acquiring the necessary skills to succeed in our diverse society. At LAAA, we don’t see language as just a form of communication, but as a bridge to connect our communities.
School year 2016-2017 will be our 6th year of operation. In our first 5 years, our enrollment has grown from 303 students in grades K-5 to 639 students in grades K-8. In 2016-2017 we will welcome 698 students. The success of our school would not be possible without the amazing support from our entire school community. We are looking forward to another outstanding year!
