Transition Update

Hello, I am Aida Ceara, the President of La Academia Charter School Board of Trustees. We want to share with you some updates regarding the transition in leadership at the school. As of March 29, Tommy is no longer employed at LAPCS. While we continue to wishing well in his future endeavors, we believe the separation was necessary to finish the year strong.

At the March 31 Board meeting, the Executive Committee will make the recommendation to appoint Amy Ferg as Interim Principal. We thank Amy for her willingness to assume the leadership role as we continue to focus on what is best for our scholars and families. Amy has been in the school for 14 years. In addition to Amy assuming the Interim Principal title, the school leadership team, teachers and staff will remain in place to ensure scholars receive outstanding education and services.

Rest assure we are in a good place.

We would like to open space to hear from you. We understand this has been a lot to process over the last couple of weeks. We want to hear from you. A public virtual Board meeting is scheduled for March 31 at 4:00pm. At the virtual Parent’s meeting of April 12 at 5:00pm, Board of Trustees representatives will be present to answer your questions. In the meantime, feel free to contact us via email or call the school at 717-295-7763.

We still go beyond. We still champion scholarly achievement. The future is bright for us!

Preparing scholars

La Academia Partnership Charter School (LAPCS), the only tuition-free charter school in Lancaster County, offers scholars in grades 6 through 12 a unique opportunity to focus on 21st century learning. With our five-year goal of becoming a dual-language school with a STEM focus, La Academia is preparing scholars to be global citizens and highly skilled workers. Small classes, hands-on learning, and linkages to local employers make La Academia unique and highly relevant for today’s learners.

Our charter school currently has an enrollment of 200 scholars in grades 6-12. New scholars are selected by random lottery. LAPCS does not discriminate against scholars or others on the basis of sex, religion, color, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy, physical, mental or emotional or learning disability or handicap. We welcome and value differences among people.
