EDUCATION

Tec Centro, La Academia and The Family & Student Center.

SACA’s Tec Centro brings the employment and career development services into the community. Our goal is to help a population that often stays on the margin of the workforce because of cultural and language barriers.

SACA pioneered the charter school “La Academia” 12 years ago to help our at-risk kids succeed.

With low student-teacher ratios, high parent and community involvement, tutoring and individualized instruction, La Academia was an early adopter of best practices now recognized across the nation. It’s working! Today the school proudly serves over 125 students in grades 6 through 12 with plans to grow so that more kids can get the education they need. It works because of strong partnerships and because parent and family involvement is kept vigorous and strong.

A special attraction: the Family and Student Center. This is a 300-seat, multi-purpose room/auditorium, physical education area and modern computer center made possible with the generous assistance of local community and corporate foundations.

Just to make sure that no opportunity is wasted, the Family and Student Center serves as an extension site for adult evening classes taught by Harrisburg Area Community College.
