With an emphasis on visual and performing arts, digital media and culturally sustaining pedagogy, LVLA graduates empowered young adults who are poised, confident and articulate leaders. Our focus on the Spanish language, for both native speakers and learners, enables students to use their education, bi-literacy and life experiences to create positive change.

Through leadership, excellence, responsibility, and resilience, our graduates make a positive impact on their own lives, their family, our TFHE community, East San Jose and beyond.

Luis Valdez Leadership Academy (LVLA) is committed to providing a rigorous academic curriculum that instills a lifelong passion for learning and equips students with the skills for social and academic success at four-year colleges, universities, and local community colleges.


At LCPA, our innovative curriculum, capable faculty and nurturing environment makes us a viable educational option for each and every student, especially English Language Learners. 

With our focus on bi-literate educational programs, LCPA fills a unique niche.  Our students have the time and focus to reach the academic level of English that is critical for educational achievement, passing standardized tests, and pursuing postsecondary scholastic opportunities.

LCPA is wholly committed to providing our students with a rigorous curriculum, a strong faculty and an environment made up of high expectations and community – a true middle college experience.
