LAEA School Update

  • Dear Linda Abril Educational Academy Student and Parents.
    LAEA will remain closed through April 10, 2020. If you have not already done so please check in with your teachers via email. Teacher web pages and teacher email addresses can be found on our LAEA web page. Teachers have been attempting to reach out to you since Spring Break ended last week and will continue to do so this week.
    If you are currently enrolled in an Edgenuity course you already have access to your coursework. If you are not in an Edgenuity class your teacher has taken steps to ensure you can continue learning through an online platform.
    We are providing FREE meals between 10:00 AM and 12:00 noon Monday through Friday for all students. Please practice safe habits including social distancing and regular hand washing for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
    We love and miss you. LAEA Principal Kemp, faculty and staff.   Make it a great day and stay healthy.

  • OUR VISION   To provide a safe, nurturing environment where students can succeed as they prepare for college, career, and life.

    OUR MISSION  To prepare every student for success, we provide quality learning through personalization.

    GENERAL INFORMATION  Starting in 2001, as Suns-Diamondbacks Education Academy (changed to Linda Abril Educational Academy in 2016), this alternative program is designed to help students complete their high school education in a small learning environment with specialized classes and schedules. Graduation ceremonies are held twice a year in December and May. Graduates are recognized at the end of every term during an awards ceremony.

    LAEA is intended for juniors and seniors who have fallen behind in their credits and will benefit from the small school environment. Students are selected for admission based on transcript, discipline, and an interview process. Students are admitted at the start of each 6-week term throughout the school year.

    The daily class schedule consists of two 145 minute classes. Regular classes are offered in Math, English, Social Studies, Business and Technology, Science, Health, as well as a limited selection of electives. Minimum assistance and resources are offered to our special education students.

    LAEA is located in a new, state-of-the-art facility on 19th Avenue and Thomas Road, and accommodates up to 400 students.
