Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students.

What better books can there be than the book of humanity?

AGUILA Sessions
  • Each AGUILA session is carefully designed to meet the requirements of a holistic approach in preparing each individual student for post-secondary education.
  • Agendas are thematic and include speakers/presenters in various professions that connect education and experience to real life and the world of work.
  • Every session includes activities that inspire students to think critically, to stretch their creativity and to discover themselves and the world around them.
  • Each session provides key learning that promotes a stronger desire for educational attainment with more clarity and commitment.
  • Each session provides a true sense of support from community and parents who interact with students and are engaged through the serving of nourishing meals and positive affirmation.
  • Each session begins with a welcome from a local or visiting Latino/Latina Leader and ends with the traditional Mayan Circle that provides students with an opportunity to have honest and open dialogue with each other about the day’s experience and/or other issues they seek to address and wish to resolve among themselves.
