Starting with a few hundred students in 2002, La Paloma Academy’s dedication to the best education for every child has grown its enrollment today into the thousands and is currently enrolling students for the 2023-2024 school year.

La Paloma Academy has become one of the largest and fastest-growing charter school groups in Southern Arizona. La Paloma’s four K-8 campuses are also among the longest-operating charter schools in Tucson.

La Paloma’s schools offer a unique cultural atmosphere, not only stressing a challenging academic curriculum, but also by emphasizing family values. The four campuses of La Paloma Academy incorporate the Six Pillars of Character, which focus on trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship, all of which are designed to teach students essential life skills they will use throughout their lifetimes.

Schools across the state, including La Paloma’s four campuses, have implemented Arizona’s Academic Standards to ensure that all students have the academic knowledge and skills they need to be successful in college, career, and life. La Paloma Academy is committed to ensuring that their curriculum and instruction meets these standards.

The four campuses of La Paloma also prepare students based on Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards which are designed to improve educational outcomes for students by raising the bar for student performance to ensure they will be college and career ready.

Additionally, La Paloma Academy uses benchmark assessment data to continually monitor students’ progress, tracking both learning levels and instructional practices to achieve the highest academic success at every level.

Life today can be hectic & unpredictable, and La Paloma Academy continues to find ways to improve the lives of students, their families, and the community by offering amenities such as tuition-free education, so families don’t have to worry about financing their child’s future success. All four campuses also offer free full-day kindergarten and a free before- and after-school program to further assist working families.
