Parents of students entering 7th- 12th grades who are interested in obtaining more information about the La Sierra Military Academy (LSMA) should attend one of the following informational meetings:

  • April 17, 24 or May 8, 2012
    6:00 p.m., LSMA Conference Room

La Sierra Military Academy Administrators will be on hand to answer questions about the school and its programs (including the Independent Study Program), which will accept students for the Fall 2012 semester. Principal Anjelica Zermeño reports that the school is seeking middle school and high school students who have post-secondary ambitions and are committed to developing their leadership skills and community service.

LSMA was created by the Tulare County Office of Education (TCOE) as a free, public high school open to all students who are interested in the school's code of conduct, intense physical training, and academic success. With a military-style culture, the school has been successful in teaching hundreds of students discipline, pride, and respect for themselves and others. La Sierra offers an After School Program which includes college and career planning, mentoring, and technology. In addition, LSMA offers service-learning courses, leadership courses, an Independent Studies Program, a program for teen parents, and certification courses in various areas.
