Dear La Academia Scholar-Athlete,

Baseball Player

On behalf of the La Academia Athletic Department, welcome to La Academia Partnership Charter School. We are proud that you have chosen La Academia to jump-start your educational and athletic career.

La Academia values the important role academics combined with athletics play in contributing to a college-bound education. We have found that combining athletics with academics yields emotional growth in our communities both as individuals and from being part of a team. Sports play a vital role in our scholar’s overall success. 

As a former High School, College, and Professional Sportsmen, I know athletics played a major role in shaping my life. Being involved in athletics helped me build healthy habits regarding the choices I made in my young adult years. I gained life skills in time management, problem-solving, and delegation while overcoming adversity barriers. When athletics and academics come together it creates a holistic approach that builds character for lifelong achievement.

I take pride in returning to my forever home in Lancaster City. It is here that I can bring my experiences and knowledge to our youth at La Academia. It is my goal to provide our scholars with an abundance of opportunities. I want them to know that hard work and dedication do pay off. I also plan to lead our youth with a holistic approach that empowers them to reach scholarly achievement. Academic and athletic departments will work together to build our community. 

As we continue to build our sports programming, we would like to have community involvement.

We want your input on providing ways to ensure equitable access for youth that is fair and promising for their futures. If you are interested in becoming a part of our mission either as a donor, sponsor, or mentor, please get in touch with me at Email Jerry Johnson.
