Academic Program
 
NEW Academy currently serves 404 students enrolled in grades TK-5. Grades TK and Kinder are located at La Posada site. Two more kindergarten classes and 3 first grade classes located at the Villa Mariposa site. Three second grade classes and two fifth grade classes are located at the Casa Loma site. Lastly, three third grade classes and three fourth grade classes are located at our Prosperity Center site. The academic program at NASA is comprised of a standards-based curriculum that places a strong emphasis on science and the arts. We implement the Character Counts framework across our curriculum to help students develop good character in accordance with the program's Six Pillars of Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.
 
Based upon the needs of our student population, NASA also offers a transitional bilingual program in which academic content is primarily taught in Spanish in grades K and 1, while grades 2-5 are taught primarily in English. Spanish language support is provided in all classrooms, with the goal that all students will become bilingual, bi-literate citizens who are proud of their heritage, and ready to embrace a culturally diverse world.
