Wisdom Integrity Success Excellence Difficulties will always occur in the academic life of a child. We find solutions to these challenges. When a child experiences confusion and frustration over an extended period of time, his or her self-esteem begins to diminish, and an “I can’t” attitude develops. Consistent encouragement, discipline, motivation and guidance can change that “I can’t” to a positive “I can”! We can make tomorrow better and brighter by educating students today. The opportunity is now! We will make this school year a pleasant and stimulating experience. We all look forward to working with your child on the path to success at ALA. Welcome!

Academic Success Can Start Now!

I am the Founder of Armenta Learning Academy. Since the age of five, I have had the dream of having my own school and impacting the lives of children. I have a Bachelor’s in Psychology, a multiple subject teaching credential, a Master’s in Education, and I am completing my Doctorate in Education. I have owned and operated the Academy for almost 20 years, and have worked in both private and public schools with all ages for 25 years. I am also a certified counselor with credentials in education and ministry. I started a shelter for abused and abandoned teens in Chula Vista, which still exists today. I am a public speaker reaching out to parents and the community to instill values, techniques, and approaches for more success with their children and within their families to impact generations to come. Currently, I am finishing my book Success for Every Child, (the parent manual we have all been waiting for.) I serve on several Boards: Council for Exceptional Children, Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders, Council for Special Education Administrators, the Council of Division of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Exceptional Learners, and Association for Dyslexia and Autism. I am involved in the community with volunteer work to help and support less fortunate children with organizations such as Families Forward, Olive Crest, Kids Connected, and The Joyful Child Foundation. At ALA, I am available for specialized assistance for students and parents, private counseling, consultations, educational and family workshops and support. My passion is to educate, motivate, inspire, and empower all families and children I come in contact with. Thank you for allowing me the honor and opportunity to work with you and your precious children. It is truly a privilege and honor!
