The Academy, located on the 2nd floor of the school, houses our resources on the issues related to: LA homelessness, transportation, economic revitalization, and immigration. It is our intention to provide this as a resource to the greater LA community. Our students are excited to provide this resource to all, including other schools, institutions, and international partners.
