Las Américas ASPIRA Academy



Las Américas ASPIRA Academy is the first dual-language (English/Spanish) charter school in Delaware.

Students will become fully proficient in reading, writing and speaking both languages through immersion as they learn their core subjects.

The curriculum is aligned with Delaware standards and it is project-based, so students learn by doing. At ASPIRA, we believe every child is college bound. All students will become bilingual, bi-literate and bicultural within six years in the program, while gaining the academic, physical, social and emotional skills to succeed in school and in life.
