Welcome to NEW Academy of Science and Arts, home of the NASA Rockets!
NEW Academy is an independent charter school located within the Belmont-Pico Union community, just west of downtown Los Angeles. Since opening in 2003, New Academy of Science and Arts (NASA) has been providing a high quality public education for students in grades K-5.
The mission of NEW Academy is to create a child-centered environment where students are able to work cooperatively, become self-directed, think critically, develop self-esteem and self-assurance, and have respect for cultural diversity.
NEW Academy has three specific performance objectives:
- to promote student progress in academic and artistic achievement, with an emphasis on the arts and sciences,
- to develop social, as well as community ethics and values in the students' character development with parental participation, and
- to implement the most appropriate curriculum for every child after initial assessment.
