The Foundation for Hispanic Education envisions a world in which all English Language Learner students are provided with the opportunity to learn in an environment that addresses their educational needs, supports cultural awareness, emphasizes their abilities and provides them with a path to success.
Committed to its mission to identify, understand, and address the Latino education achievement gap through innovation and collaboration, the Foundation continually funds and provides resources to local and national initiatives undertaking educational issues facing minorities in innovative ways.
Serving the East San Jose community for over 30 years, the Foundation currently operates the Center for Latino Education and Innovation, and three charter high schools: Latino College Preparatory Academy, Luis Valdez Leadership Academy, and Roberto Cruz Leadership Academy.
The mission of the Foundation for Hispanic Education is to provide leadership in the education of English Language Learners(ELL) and the development of specialized training programs for teachers of English Language Learners by:
Our Strategy –
We seek to accomplish this by:
a) supporting existing programs to ensure continued achievement;
b) creating and supporting teacher training programs specifically directed at under achieving ELL students;
c) providing information and direction in attaining sufficient financial aid to support post-secondary education admission and retention.
We believe in community, a signature approach that applies a unique combination of cooperative learning and mutual assistance among students, faculty and community/business partners in a personal and culturally relevant environment. The interactions with responsive and caring professors, staff and community members help to create a caring and supportive environment with a high degree of authenticity in all interactions.
We cherish multiple perspectives and embrace diversity in support of our common mission that is the cornerstone of access to quality education for our students
