The Language Academy has received a $5,000 education grant from the Barona Band of Mission Indians.

New lab equipment and supplies for middle-school grades will be purchased with the funds.

The Barona Band of Mission Indians is proud to help make a difference for schools throughout California. Through the endorsement of locally-elected state representatives, schools receive Barona educational funding to purchase much-needed supplies and materials such as books and computers.

Each grant awarded by the Barona Education Grant Program is $5,000.
