La Academia de Esperanza Charter School

La Academia de Esperanza Charter School (LADE) is a charter school that serves students in Grades 6-12.

La Academia de Esperanza Charter School (LADE) fills a long-recognized need in the Albuquerque area for the growing population of "at-risk" youth in the middle and secondary levels.  This program provides a viable option to those currently offered by the Albuquerque Public Schools while enriching the community as a whole.

LADE strives to open the hearts and minds of children to life’s possibilities, while supporting their self-determination in the least restrictive environment. We focus on educating and meeting the individual needs of each of our students. LADE provides quality academic and vocational learning for students ages 11 to 18 in preparation for their roles as socially responsible individuals, within a community-based, ethnically and culturally-sensitive educational environment.
