El Paso Leadership Academy
We Build. We Lead.

Causes: Education, Youth

El Paso Leadership Academy is a public college preparatory middle school located by Downtown El Paso, TX.

The school was founded in 2014 by El Paso natives Mr. Omar Yanar and Mr. Andrew Benitez whose mission was to ensure the youth of El Paso take their rightful place in this world as four-year college graduates and the future leaders of our community.

In four short years EPLA has surpassed many obstacles, and in 2018, was awarded 5 Academic Distinctions from the Texas Education Agency and is now ranked as a Top 5 Middle School in Texas for Academic Growth.

The fourth year participating in EP Giving Day, EPLA has used funds to support initiatives outside of the classroom including the establishment of our robotics program and annual college field trips.

Our goal is to raise ,000 this year to support our college & leadership field trips as well as upgrade our courtyard to become a safe and comfortable space to learn & play!
