The Foundation for Hispanic Education:

The Foundation for Hispanic Education was established in 1981 as a product of the late Dr. B. Roberto Cruz’s vision of providing quality education and support for all underserved learners, with a focus on Latino students. Serving the East San Jose community for over 30 years, The Foundation for Hispanic Education currently operates the Center for Latino Education and Innovation and three charter high schools- Latino College Preparatory Academy and Luis Valdez Leadership Academy- and has now opened its third charter high school, Roberto Cruz Leadership Academy.
