Citizenship Education:

The Nuevos Ciudadanos Citizenship Education Program is Academia América’s New Americans Project. The Program has the dual goals of integration and civic engagement. The curriculum, modules in Civics, History and English, facilitate preparation for the naturalization examination and promote civic engagement. Financial Literacy education emphasizes social integration.

Legal Services:

Academia América partners with nonprofit legal assistance providers to facilitate access to low-cost legal services to our clients. Students enrolled in our classes receive assistance with completion of the naturalization application and related forms at discounted rates.
