New Academy Is A Partnership With Acelero Learning
Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman and Mayor Pro Tem Lois Tarkanian will be joined by officials from Acelero Learning for the grand opening of the new Strong Start Academy at 1617 Alta Drive on Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 9 a.m.
The facility has been renovated and is the second of two Strong Start Academies opening this year. The city is committed to giving children a “Strong Start” and significantly increasing the number of students who graduate from high school ready for college and career by advocating for and bringing awareness to the importance of early childhood education from birth to age 8.
Collaboration with policy makers and other key stakeholders including the Nevada Department of Education, Clark County School District, UNLV Department of Education, United Way of Southern Nevada and Children’s Advocacy Alliance is helping to increase access to high quality pre-K programs.
A ribbon-cutting will be held and tours of the facility will be available for media. Acelero Learning is a partner with the city in the Strong Start Academy at this location.
Those interested in enrolling children in the Strong Start Pre-K program at this location can call 702.387.0179. To learn more about the city of Las Vegas’ education programs, visit www.lasvegasnevada.gov/education.
