Congratulations to our Eagle Warrior Familia!

Congratulations Class of 2021!

YOU DID IT! You were able to overcome the challenges of the pandemic with courage, determination and hard work. We are very excited to be celebrating YOUR accomplishment on Saturday, June 5th at PayPal Park!


Congratulations to the following Eagle Warriors on their acceptance into the 2021 Pediatrics Summer Internship Program at Stanford University:

  • Eagle Warrior Yazmine (10th Grade)
  • Eagle Warrior Esmeralda (11th Grade)


This is a 5-week internship focused on science and medicine that is open to high school rising juniors and seniors who live in Northern California. The goals of the program include increasing interest in biological sciences and medicine in high school students, helping students to understand how scientific research is performed, and increasing the diversity of students and researchers in the sciences.


Congratulations to the following Eagle Warriors on their acceptance into the 2021 Summer Engineering Seminar Program at Santa Clara University:

  • Eagle Warrior Emmanuel (11th Grade))
  • Eagle Warrior Sinesio (10th Grade)
  • Eagle Warrior Mariana (11th Grade)


The SES program is designed to motivate young people to pursue science and engineering majors in college so they can ultimately participate in the scientific and technical work force. It provides participants with a chance to explore the many possibilities of engineering as a career. Participants virtually attend special workshops, complete their own engineering projects, and experience outside-of-class aspects of Santa Clara University through afternoon and evening recreational activities.


Congratulations to the following Eagle Warriors on being selected for the next round of consideration for the Students Rising Above Program. Your LCPA Educational Community is extremely proud of all of you. You were chosen among 440 applicants and are part of the 117 finalists. Our next step is to prepare you for the interviews. Felicidades!

LCPA Student Behavior Expectations for Distance Learning

LCPA believes in supporting the safe and responsible use of all online and digital technologies for teaching and learning. During this period of distance learning, all students are responsible for continuing to practice positive digital citizenship by protecting and respecting their peers and teachers. We all must understand, practice, and model positive and productive behaviors when we are online. Because a remote learning environment is still a classroom, school behavior norms and rules are to be followed just as expected in the regular educational setting/classroom.
