Fall 2023!

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

Child's Potential!


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.
