About Academia Antonia Alonso Charter School
Mission & Vision
Academia Antonia Alonso (La Academia) is a public elementary school – it is free to the public. La Academia is the first dual language elementary school in Delaware with a focus on nurturing bilingual, biliterate and multicultural children. Academic instruction will take place half of the time in English and half in Spanish. Students will learn to think critically and take action in their classrooms and communities through project based learning and by engaging in real life issues.
At La Academia, we believe that we are at our best when we are working together for the common good. Our school opened in August 2014 with two grade levels, Kindergarten and 1st grade. The school will add a grade level every year, to grow to a K-5 school by 2018.
At Academia Antonia Alonso, we are driven by our mission to inspire children to become joyful, confident, creative, bilingual learners, by providing our students with a strong biliterate academic and cultural foundation.
Our vision is to nurture individuals who will develop a passion for life-long learning, becoming multicultural stewards and leaders in the communities they touch.
Academia Antonia Alonso’s core philosophy is to create a school where students investigate who they are and what role they play in a diverse society. Our students will be encouraged to become strong community leaders, as well as advocates on local, national, and global stages. Our academic program will provide students with a sense of community and global awareness, as well as 21st century skills. The academic program combines a Two-Way Dual Language Immersion model and Project Based Learning (PBL) methodology. The integration of these two learning approaches support students’ instructional and language acquisition needs.
?Wrap-around services offered through the Latin American Community Center will complement the academic program and provide optional before- and after-school support and language acquisition programs for families whose children attend Academia Antonia Alonso.
