Director's Greeting

  • Welcome to the Burbank Unified Independent Learning Academy,

    We are starting our sixth year at the Independent Learning Academy, which we refer to as the ILA. Since we opened our doors, the ILA has grown in many ways. We now have four full-time supervising teachers, earned a six-year term of accredtation from WASC and have our courses a-g approved. For this year we have added a part-time counselor and campus security. Students at the ILA may (District approval required) participate in Career and Technical Education programs (CTE) and access courses not offered at the ILA through their high school of residence. Our focus is centered on providing students a rigorous academic experience which prepares them to meet their college and career goals. If you would like to learn more about the ILA and the opportunities it can provide your student, please contact me to arrnge a time to meet and discuss what the ILA offers.

    Most sincerely,

    Emilio Urioste, Jr.

    Director, ILA
