Welcome to La Academia de Estrellas

The mission of La Academia de Estrellas is to be a premier public charter school where students become life-long learners who actively participate in their own learning, remain engaged in the educational process and show mastery of the TEKS objectives at each grade level.

Teacher Appreciation Fund Raiser

Attention LAE parents! We're taking donations for teacher appreciation week. As always, we want to show the teachers of LAE just how much we appreciate them by providing lunch and treats over the course of teacher appreciation week. (May 3rd - May 7th) If you are able, please make a donation by April 28th, so that we can make it a special week for all of our teachers.

Student Application Period for the 2021-22 School Year Has Begun!

La Academia de Estrellas started accepting new student applications for the 2021-22 school year on Monday, February 1st at 9 AM. We will be accepting applications for grades PK3 to 8th through March 31st. Paper applications will be available at both of our sites, but we encourage parents to use our online application (see below) instead. Please do not apply for a student who is already attending LAE. If we receive more applications for a grade than the number of available spots, we will hold a lottery in early April to select which applicants are admitted and which applicants will go on a wait list.

¡Ha comenzado el período de solicitud de estudiantes para el año escolar 2021-22!

La Academia de Estrellas comenzó a aceptar nuevas solicitudes de estudiantes para el año escolar 2021-22 el Lunes 1 de Febrero a las 9 a.m. Aceptaremos solicitudes para los grados PK3 a 8vo hasta el 31 de Marzo. Las solicitudes impresas estarán disponibles en nuestros dos sitios, pero recomendamos a los padres que usen nuestra solicitud en línea (vea abajo). No solicite para un estudiante que ya está asistiendo a LAE. Si recibimos más solicitudes de un grado que el número de lugares disponibles, realizaremos un sorteo a principios de Abril para seleccionar qué solicitantes serán admitidos y cuáles ingresarán en una lista de espera.

LAE is Going Paperless!

Parents, we no longer send home paper calendars or lunch menus, and are trying to limit the number of other miscellaneous hands-outs as well. Instead, these handouts can be found here. Paper copies of these documents are available at the reception desk upon request.

LAE Parent Handouts

La Academia de Estrellas is pleased to introduce a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts®

The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up.

School Vision

A strong educational foundation is the key to success for all students. Quality education levels the playing field and enables all students to reach their greatest potential. Instruction must be tailored to the needs of the students and should provide opportunities that take the learner beyond the school walls. Furthermore, students and their parents play an active role in the learning process, participating willingly in a risk-free environment, guided by nurturing, knowledgeable and effective teachers and administrators.
