Justin-Siena High School’s Lasallian Education Access Program (LEAP), founded in 2010, serves 49 economically disadvantaged students each year. LEAP provides educational access for students who would not otherwise be able to attend a private, Lasallian Catholic college preparatory school. The program and its staff address the variety of social, cultural, and academic needs of its scholars who enter Justin-Siena; we hope to break the cycle of poverty through significant tuition assistance and incredible academic and personal support. LEAP scholars are first-generation college bound students whose grit and determination surpass their financial resources. Most importantly, LEAP supports and engages parents in supporting their student’s quest for a college education.
