Our elective program includes theater, band, choir, art, dance, Spanish, French, student leadership, culinary arts, sports medicine, business, photography, creative writing, psychology, and many more. In addition, there are numerous clubs based on interests such as guitar, games, and Be a Leader to name a few.

Our academic programs will prepare students to move on to higher education. We have Advanced Placement courses in English Literature, English Language, Spanish, Art, U.S. History, World History, U.S. Government, Psychology, Calculus, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. We will continue to expand our AP courses to give students opportunities to earn college credits in high school.

The Lobos are also highly competitive in athletics and compete in volleyball, football, cross country, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, track, tennis, golf, and spiritline.

There is something for every student at La Joya. This is where they will become the person they will eventually be, equipped with the tools, training, and knowledge to be successful in life and a future leader. This is where they begin the journey to reach their life goals.

Say it Loud, Say it Proud! Go Lobos!
