About Us

Founded in 1992, the Courthouse Academy is still owned and operated by the founder Kym Pomares.

Kym had a vision that she has transferred to thousands of students over the years and has been proven time and time again: bilingualism is a significant life advantage.

Kym did not grow up in a bilingual household. She knew she was of Spanish heritage on her father’s side, but she lost him to illness at a very young age. It was not until years later that she discovered he was of Cuban origin. But she always, from a very young age, felt knowing another language was critical to life success. In high school Spanish clicked for her, and after college it grew into a lifelong passion.

Over the past 25 years of running this school, Kym and her team have worked hard to provide academic excellence through a wide variety of learning experiences and innovative curriculum. Their beautiful building supports infants, toddler, preschoolers and children all the way through grade-4 immersed in an English-Spanish environment that stimulates their minds, builds their confidence, in an Academy that keeps learning fun.

The Courthouse Manifesto

Bilingualism is a lifelong competitive advantage

Various studies suggest that bilingual speakers develop greater mental flexibility, resulting in an advanced ability to process conflicting information to identify the most important information. We believe that the best time to learn a second language is during your child’s developmental years. This skill will also enhance your child’s attentiveness and short-term memory, and help to provide them with greater opportunities in the future.

It's never too late to start;
but starting early has added benefits

Infants exposed to dual languages can sometimes take longer to learn to speak, but extensive studies done have found that lifelong exposure to bilingual environments create extensive competitive advantages – greater creativity, lateral thinking, and the ability to focus deeply – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. That said, it’s never too late to start. Many children have come to us at ages 6-10 knowing zero Spanish, and have not only caught up… but excelled!
