    To offer Spanish-speaking people the opportunity to begin/and or finish their education in their own language and provide them, once they reach the academic proficiency in Elementary and Middle School, with a certificate offered by the Public Education Secretary (SEP in Spanish).


  • To provide students with the opportunity to learn to read and write in a highly flexible and self paced format so they can access better jobs and reach their fullest potential. Students improve their Spanish and make English learning easier (ESL) and improve education levels in the Mexican and Latin community.

  • To prepare parents with limited or no education to help and encourage their children with specific hands-on assistance with homework and other academic tasks when they start school. Children, in return, begin to show more respect for their parents.
