I've always known that Julie has an amazing heart, but while getting to know her business better, I'm blown away at how good they are at what they do.

These days, like many other people, it is tough for me to trust what people say about themselves (even though Julie is one of those rare few business people you can.)

But when you look at the huge number of success stories and testimonials over the many years they've been doing this, it is very obvious that they do what they say they can do.

Take a minute and review them and tell me that isn't extremely impressive...

Thank you so much for updating me on my daughter's progress. She said she is learning so much more and she loves working with Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith is great at updating me every day as to what they worked on and what she needs to do, and most of all, he has such a positive attitude towards her and that is huge.

She has never had any teacher believe in her, so because of this, she has never believed in herself academically. She was a lot happier today when she got home from school, which is a first in a long time.

Thank you again and have a nice weekend,

Joyce W.

Mrs. Armenta,
Thank you for reading with me. I love you. I like doing math with you. I like writing my name and dancing with you. Thank you for being my teacher.


Mrs. Armenta has made the world of difference in Maria's life. Maria has been reading for the first time and her life has been enriched beyond words. She is reaching her absolute potential in math, reading and her other academics and her self esteem and her behaviors have all greatly improved along with her amazingly improved academic achievements in less than three months time.
Thank you Julie for truly making the difference! We are so pleased to have you as part of the team and Maria loves you!

ALA is a big help with my work. It would be hard to get through my work without Mr. Smith & Mrs. Armenta.

Landon McCorkle

Thank you Mrs. Armenta, for teaching me Spanish and taking the time to talk with me during school.


Julie, you have no idea how much I love you! You are like a second mommy 2 me! (Now don't cry, this is one of my sappy ones.), you have helped me through a lot of things in my life, and I could never pay back to you how much you have given me, not only in school but in life in general. Caring for someone has no boundaries for you! You have influenced me in so many ways! I love you dearly!


Dear Mrs. Armenta & Mr. Smith,
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity of working at Armenta Learning Academy. You both are very positive influences with the students and parents. They love you dearly. You model superb attitudes each day, which brings happiness to those around you.
With Appreciation and gratitude.

"I love my friends, teachers and my school! Thank you Mrs. Armenta for starting this school."


"Thank you for making me accelerate through my classes faster!"


Mrs. Armenta,
I wanted to send you a note specifically to thank you for all the wonderful things you are doing with Maria. Even a casual bystander would be struck by the enthusiasm and glee that Maria shows for all the activities she does with you. For those of us close to her, it is so dramatic and heart-warming that it's almost beyond words.I believe that everyone at the meeting this week was a bit of a loss because there weren't any problems or conflicts to resolve - only positive reports and real options for even more positive results because of what
you are doing with Maria.

"Thank you so much for helping me with my homework. You are a great teacher, and you are always a sweet and kind person. You are always happy!"


My son came here discouraged and self-conscious and sad.
Now, he is happy again and enjoys school.

Armenta Academy has been a wonderful alternative to a traditional school. The academy provides a well-balanced environment, focusing on independent study as well as group activities and participation. Having flexible class schedules and a motivated staff has made a huge impact on our lives.

Thank you so much for being a kind heart and refuge when my son needed one. He loves you.

I have never seen my son excited about school ever through all his school years. We are excited about his enthusiasm to learn and graduate this year. Thanks to you!


Thank you Mrs. Armenta & Mr. Smith, I really love school now. I want to come to Armenta every day, because you make learning fun and easy. You both are my favorite
teachers. Thank you for bringing Hannah & Brody. I love them very much. I can't wait to see them again.


Thank you Mrs. Armenta & Mr. Smith for all you have done for Sara. She has been so happy and loves to read again. She loves coming to Armenta.

I like this school, it has helped me a lot and will continue to help me with my concentration and focus in high school. Most teachers through my life have never helped me, but Mr. Smith has helped me like no other. Thank you Mr. Smith
