What we do
We work to improve the lives of immigrants
Academia América provides education programs and services to lawful immigrants to facilitate naturalization. We believe that U.S. citizenship is an essential prerequisite if immigrants are to achieve full integration in American society. U.S. citizenship will empower them with the potential to attain 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 and English, facilitate preparation for the naturalization examination and promote civic engagement.
Academia América partners with nonprofit legal services providers to facilitate access to low-cost legal services to our clients. Clients enrolled in our classes receive assistance with completion of the naturalization application and related forms at affordable rates.
Academia América sponsors periodic civic engagement workshops. Topics include the various government jurisdictions that impact the everyday lives of the citizenry, how the electoral system works, and voting eligibility requirements. Deputy registrars are available to register recently naturalized citizens.
