La Academia Antonio Alonso charter school relocates to Christiana

The dual-language Academia Antonia Alonso Charter School is set for expansion after moving to Christiana, its third location since the school was created.

Academia Antonia Alonso was founded in 2014 to serve bilingual, bi-literate and multicultural children.

The school originally was located in the Community Education Building in Wilmington but moved to Barley Mill Plaza in Greenville in 2016 to have access to more space. The school rented space from Odyssey Charter School, but its five-year lease expired in June 2021 with no long-term option for expansion.

La Academia applied for modifications in December 2021, claiming to the Delaware Department of Education that the school had “long outgrown” its former facility.

“For the past few years, Art, Music and STEM have been ‘on a cart,'” the school wrote in its site application. “Space allocated for a Library/Media Room has continued to be compressed, limiting students’ access to important resources.”
