Welcome to Gus Garcia Young Men's Leadership Academy
Beginning in the 2014-15 school year, Garcia and Pearce will operate as single-gender schools, where our exemplary staff will deliver focused, customized curriculum that results in students’ continued academic success and provides them with the opportunity to thrive socially and academically.
The goal of the Austin Independent School District is to ensure that all students, regardless of background or circumstance, will graduate ready for college, career and life in a globally competitive economy. To achieve this, on Jan. 28, 2013, the AISD Board of Trustees voted to combine Garcia and Pearce Middle Schools into two single-gender middle schools that will open August 25, 2014. This unique opportunity will be instrumental in providing a safe and welcoming environment that is conducive to teaching and learning.
