Higher Learning Academy (HLA) Administration, Faculty and Staff welcomes you to our charter school. HLA, a Core Knowledge charter school in Sacramento, Del Paso and Arden area serving students from Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten through 8th grade, offers our students, our families and our community a high quality educational program with an emphasis on strong family involvement and lifelong learning. We are excited that you have decided to join our school community.

With a current enrollment of 245 students, HLA takes great pride in maintaining our commitment to our common mission. Working together, family and school, our goal when your son or daughter graduates from HLA, is that (s)he will:

  • Perform at grade level or above academically;
  • Have a plan for high school and beyond;
  • Be developing strong positive character traits; and
  • Have strong student study skills.

HLA provides students the opportunity to work within small class sizes and when necessary receive extra help or tutoring for their areas of challenge. Students may explore their interest in Music, Art and Athletics. Class field trips, shared projects, and service learning projects are just a few of the excellent opportunities for students to express their talents and skills.

We encourage you to take time to study our web site and contact us with your questions. We are happy to meet with you and give you a tour of our campus. We look forward to making a difference in the life of each of our students.
