The Los Angeles Service Academy is accepting applications for students to participate in the 2015-2016 season.

History teachers Francine Werner and Katherine Holmes-Chuba encouraged sophomores to take advantage of this opportunity to see the their city in a new light.

Participants meet throughout the school year at Los Angeles institutions, such as water treatment plants and City Hall, learning about the city.

There is a four-day summer intensive program in August to kick off the program.

Applications were due Monday.

“The program allows one to see Los Angeles in an entirely new way,” Holmes-Chuba said.
