THE PROGRAM

Latinos In Action offers a unique approach to bridging the graduation and achievement gap Latino students generally experience in the United States. We are an asset-based model; rather than focusing on student deficits, LIA develops the assets students bring to the table, including their culture, bilingualism, drive, and individual talents and abilities. Since our inception, our students have maintained a 96% graduation rate.

The LIA classroom model is implemented as an elective course for Middle School, Junior High, and High Schools. Class time is split between a rigorous college/career readiness curriculum and literacy tutoring at local elementary schools. Outside of this, LIA students serve in their communities, are involved in extracurricular activities, and participate in college preparatory coursework such as AP, Concurrent Enrollment and Honors classes.
