Welcome ● Bienvenidos ● 歡迎 ● Tlanextlihqueh Nohcnihuan

Semillas represents two community-based charter schools in East Los Angeles, Xinaxcalmecac Academia Semillas del Pueblo for grades kinder through eighth and Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory High School of North America for grades ninth through twelfth. Semillas students receive instruction in three languages: English, Spanish, and Nahuatl (the indigenous language of Mexico), in order to graduate students that are internationally-minded, culturally wise community members.
As the first International Baccalaureate World School to be authorized in the city of Los Angeles and the only World School in East L.A., Semillas goes beyond the minimal standard of instruction, to meet the rigor of international standards of education, as well as internationally recognized rights of children, and Indigenous Peoples through our houses of higher learning. Semillas is decisively paving the way for university success on the international stage for twenty-first century students based upon the wisdom of millenarian Indigenous knowledge. Semillas also provides a haven for students to cultivate intellectual and social potential to become future doctors, lawyers, artists, entrepreneurs and educators. Semillas strives to provide a strong foundation for future generations through a powerful education so they become conscious, whole and capable individuals that can guide with ancestral clarity for the coming seven generations.
Through our work, we have supported the education of over 400 students from kinder through ninth grades, touched the lives of up to one thousand other people through their family members and reached thousands more through community cultural events we organize regularly. Semillas students perform exceedingly well on standardized tests and have continued on an upward trend. We are also proud to report that Semillas students continue to prove that the longer they have studied in Semillas’ programs the better they perform on standardized tests. More importantly, Semillas has developed deep roots in the entire community of Los Angeles, and our parents and students have strengthened our community’s grasp of our languages and our cultures.
