Preparing students

La Academia Partnership Charter School (LAPCS), the only tuition-free charter school in Lancaster County, offers students 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 students 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 223 students in grades 6-12. New students are selected by random lottery. LAPCS does not discriminate against students 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.


This video was written and produced by the students to show their enthusiasm about their school.
