Latino College Prep Academy (LCPA) is a charter high school under The Foundation for Hispanic Education (TFHE) with oversight provided by the East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD). 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.
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.
Graduation is the major milestone in our path towards success with 90% of LCPA students graduating in four years. Following graduating our students from LCPA, we celebrate the successful placement of 85% of our students at a college of their choice (two-year and/or four-year universities and colleges):
- 65% of LCPA’s Class of 2018 was admitted to at least one four-year university.
- 60% of LCPA’s Class of 2018 was A - G Eligible after four years of instruction.
- 44% of students graduated with the Seal of Biliteracy - the highest rate in the County.
