About Us

Our Vision

PSJA ISD first opened the PSJA Sonia M. Sotomayor Building Blocks Academy in Pharr during the 2023-2024 school year. The Academy stands as a beacon in early childhood education, laying a solid foundation for 3 and 4-year-olds in our collaborative community.
Our goals include enhancing kindergarten readiness, expanding capacity, and facilitating access to top-tier Pre-K Programs. Through exceptional early learning experiences, PSJA ISD ensures that Pre-K 3 through Kindergarten students are not just prepared but connected and poised for post-secondary success.
This state-of-the-art facility features an Outdoor Learning Classroom aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. The academy promotes play-based learning through a unique solar-powered tree house and a community garden, fostering an environment where students can build their educational foundation with a true connection to the world around them.

Serving families in Alamo!

Opening during the 2024-2025 school year, the PSJA Alamo Building Blocks Academy is the latest addition to PSJA ISD's renowned early childhood program and is the district's second campus exclusively dedicated to serving Pre-K 3 through Kinder students. Like its sister campus serving families in Pharr,  the academy promotes play-based learning and fosters an environment where students can build their educational foundation with a true connection to the world around them through the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

By enrolling their children, parents can expect a nurturing and stimulating educational experience that lays a solid groundwork for lifelong learning and success.

Play-Based Learning

Play provides opportunities to learn, to laugh, and to build a loving relationship with children. The support our students receive from the district teachers in exploring through play and everyday activities is an important part of a child's development.

Talking and listening to children, asking them to explain their thinking, and making learning fun through play and everyday activities help them to develop a positive attitude towards school readiness.
