Cuauhtli Academy

Located at the Emma S. Barrientos, Mexican-American Cultural Center, Academia Cuauhtli (Eagle Academy) is a language and culture revitalization project for 4th grade students from Metz, Sanchez, Zavala and Houston Elementary Schools from the Austin Independent School District (AISD). Beginning on January 10, 2015 and continuing through May 2, 1015, Academia Cuauhtli offers instruction in Mexican American Studies and Tejano Studies curriculum.
Our Saturday classes are completely free and taught in Spanish. Taught by AISD master dual languge teachers and in the context of a 12-to-1 student-teacher ratio, we envision this curriculum as not only providing the academic support that these children need in preparation for their STAAR exams and academic performance, generally, but also providing enrichment for students that we anticípate will have enduring impacts for them.
Academia Cuauhtli is a collaboration of Nuestro Grupo (a community-based group organized by the Texas Center for Education Policy and the Tejano Monument Curriculum Initiative, both at the University of Texas at Austin and the National Latino Education Research and Policy Project [NLERAP], its fiscal agent and national nonprofit organization), the Austin Independent School District, the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department and within it, the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center.
Academy Cuauhtli is a product of love, effort and passion from our talented group of collaborators.
