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.

Student Enrollment for 2021-22

La Academia de Estrellas's student application period for 2021-22 ran from February 1st to March 31st. The lotteries have been held and parents of accepted students were notified on April 15-16.  Parents have several weeks to enroll their students.  Students not selected in the lotteries were placed on the wait lists for their grades based on application date.  LAE will continue to accept applications until December 31, 2021 and these applicants will go on the waitlists, if applicable, in the same order.  We currently have openings in PK3 and any applicants will be accepted immediately (all PK students must still qualify based on eligibility requirements)!

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.
