About KLA Academy
KLA Academy was founded in Miami by Roberto & Candy Ortega.
The Ortega’s founded KLA Schools, a network of Reggio Emilia-inspired preschools in 2008 and expanded into elementary education shortly after. KLA’s flagship preschool and elementary have been mainstays in the Brickell community for many years, and when the school community outgrew their building, the dream of KLA Academy was born.
One day, every school will be designed to prepare children for the unique challenges of their future as opposed to the familiar problems of our past.
Every day, we actively seek to uncover, recover, and discover the unique gifts and talents that each child possesses, in order to develop young children into the compassionate, curious, conscientious adults the world needs more of.
To reimagine the structure and purpose of school for a rapidly changing world, where children find and use their own power to develop into thoughtful, caring, and curious young people.
