Latino College Preparatory Academy

Latino College Preparatory Academy

In 2001, in response to the burgeoning Latino population in San Jose, The Foundation for Hispanic Education established a bilingual charter school, Latino College Preparatory Academy (LCPA).

Since then, LCPA’s mission has been to enable underserved high school English Language Learners (ELL) to become bi-literate in English and Spanish and proficient in mathematics and science while remaining culturally responsive to ensure their ability to successfully complete requirements for a high school diploma and pursue post-secondary educational opportunities.

Through its mission, LCPA aims to be recognized as the premier provider of high school ELL educational programs, thus ensuring innovative, successful leaders with critical thinking, decision-making, information technology, and communications skills.
