La Academia [The Academy] is a makerspace embedded in the Southwood Community of Albemarle County, VA. 

Sponsored and staffed by Albemarle County Public Schools, with community volunteers, we promote passion based learning through the lens of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.  We believe that our children have amazing talents and ideas and when given the space and time to explore these passions they will be prepared to engage in a lifetime of learning.
