South Bronx Literacy Academy
A School Centering Students with Language Based Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia and Other Reading and Writing Challenges
All About Us
Literacy Academy Collective (LAC) is working with the DOE on a concept for a new K-8 public school, South Bronx Literacy Academy (SBLA). SBLA will be specifically designed to support children with language-based learning disabilities, dyslexia & reading struggles, and the co-occurring conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, and depression that so often go alongside.
Our intention is to open in fall 2023 in District 7, in the South Bronx starting with two 2nd and two 3rd grade sections.
SBLA will unlock the potential of students struggling to read by bringing culturally relevant, structured literacy to the classroom through evidence-based, direct, explicit instruction.
To Unlock Your
We view reading and literacy as a Civil Right
and understand the revolutionary
transformation that occurs when a child
who struggles fnds success.
We believe in the promise of young people
with language-based learning disabilities
and reading challenges to thrive if given an
opportunity to crack the literacy code.
We believe: If given the ability to read and write, students will be empowered to crack the code, overcome seemingly insurmountable barriers to break free from the stigma of illiteracy, and go on to discover themselves as passionate, joyful, lifelong learners.
