Dear Prospective Family:

Thank you for taking this opportunity to learn more about Holland Language Academy.

We are pleased that you are considering HLA for your child’s educational needs. On behalf of our faculty and staff, I want you to know that we believe it truly is a privilege to partner in your child’s learning.

As you come to know our school, you will discover that we are more than just a place to learn; we are a community. Holland Language Academy’s students in kindergarten through seventh grade have the opportunity to excel academically in two languages, Spanish and English.

Our student body, faculty, and families are a healthy patchwork of races, religions, and ethnic backgrounds. The diversity at Holland Language Academy provides an opportunity for children of all backgrounds to experience and embrace different cultures and lifestyles.

We believe that our success as an educational community begins with your careful assessment of our school relative to your child’s needs and your expectations, as well as our understanding of how we can provide the best education for your child.

We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Iliana Vásquez-Ochoa, Principal
