LA JOYA — The La Joya Independent School District’s top priority in 2012 is developing a community that has its entire graduating student body attend college. District leaders want to change the culture of the area to help students realize that college is possible for everyone.
“We want to make sure our whole district is working on a college-going culture,” said Superintendent Dr. Alda T. Benavides.
The school district already has one early college high school and is looking at expanding to give more students in the district the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree when they graduate from high school.
