Luis Valdez Leadership Academy

In 2014, The Foundation for Hispanic Education opened its second charter high school serving the East San Jose community, Luis Valdez Leadership Academy (LVLA). LVLA is committed to providing a rigorous academic program designed to instill a lifelong passion for learning and to equip students with the skills for social and academic success at four year colleges, universities and local community colleges.

LVLA has embodied the legacy of its namesake- Luis Valdez- by integrating a visual, performing arts, and digital media program into its curriculum. Through its culturally sustaining pedagogy, LVLA aims to graduate empowered young adults who are poised, confident and articulate leaders.
