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. In fact, nearly 80% of our first graduating class were accepted to 4-year universities and nearly 100% of received high school diplomas. With an emphasis on visual and performing arts, digital media and culturally sustaining pedagogy, LVLA will continue to graduate empowered young adults who are poised, confident and articulate leaders. LVLA’s 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 in their own lives, families and within their communities.
Through leadership, excellence, responsibility, and resilience, we have no doubt that LVLA graduates will make a positive impact on the East San Jose community and beyond.
