Academia América fulfills its mission of immigrant integration by providing education programs and services to legal residents to facilitate naturalization. We believe that U. S. citizenship is an essential prerequisite if immigrants are to achieve full integration. U. S. citizenship will empower them to acquire capacity to build financial and family security since it removes the threat and consequences of deportation.
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.
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.
