La Sierra Academy (LSA) is all about community, and it’s been that way since 1922 when they started.
“We eagerly look forward to celebrating 100 years of K-12 education in our community,” shares Elizabeth Muñoz Beard, TK-12 Head Principal.
The school is excited to once again facilitate in-person instruction for students. In September 2020, LSA was approved for the school waiver and K-6 opened for on-campus learning. In October, Riverside County went into the Red Reopening Tier and grades 7-12 opened for on campus learning.
“Virtual learning has been incredibly difficult on many children and so we are blessed to be able to offer the on campus option to our families,” Beard adds.
Students are now able to continue with not only their core classes but also art, music, PE, and the school’s K-6 STEAM program. They’re also able to gather again for chapels. Last month, LSA celebrated Black History month in every classroom and every chapel.
“The chapels in February were especially inspiring as our constituent and area pastors came on our campus and were able to feel the energy of our students through praise music,” Beard described.
Recently, one of their campus ministries groups, the Impact Team, shared daily reminders of the power of prayer.
“While the past year has not been easy for most people, our school community has supported one another through school, worship, and prayer,” Beard said.
