The Foundation for Hispanic Education
Latino College Prep Academy (LCPA) is a charter high school with oversight provided by the Eastside Union High School District. LCPA focuses on providing its students with a rigorous curriculum, a strong faculty and an environment made up of high expectations and community – a middle college experience.
LCPA has created a ten-year educational track that has enhanced Latino students’ chances of succeeding academically and completing a college degree. With its innovative curriculum, capable faculty and nurturing environment, LCPA has become a viable educational option for each and every student, especially English Language Learners. With its focus on bi-literate educational programs, LCPA fills a unique niche in providing these students the time and focus to reach the academic level of English that is critical for academic achievement, passing standardized tests, and pursuing postsecondary educational opportunities.
The vision of the Latino College Prep Academy (LCPA) is to be recognized as the premier provider of High School English Language Learner educational programs, thus ensuring innovative, successful leaders with critical thinking, decision-making, information technology, and communications skills.
The mission of the Latino College Prep Academy is to enable underserved high school English Language Learners to become bi-literate in English, Spanish, mathematics, and science. These skills will ensure their ability to successfully complete requirements for a high school diploma and pursue post-secondary educational opportunities of their choice.
Graduation is the major milestone in our path towards success. By graduating our students from LCPA, we celebrate the successful placement of 92% of our students at a college of their choice.
