Back to School: Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) Career Academy, a new charter school
The final school in our back to school series to highlight new charter schools that opened this fall is Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) Career Academy. See the previous posts in the series here, here, and here.
LAYC Career Academy is geared toward students ages 16 to 24 who may be behind academically. It will offer GED courses and other classes and training including college-prep classes to earn college credits.
“Students are choosing to come to us because they realize they need more education. We had 250 applications for 100 slots,” said Angela Stepancic, principal. The school, located at 3047 15th Street, NW in Ward 1, opened on September 10.
