In an environment of brotherhood, the Gus Garcia Young Men’s Leadership Academy develops scholars who are empathetic, service-oriented problem-solvers—lifelong learners who succeed in high school, college, career and life.
The all-boys academy in East Austin offers a world of opportunities—from arts and athletics to science and engineering—to help students achieve their greatest potential.
Garcia makes lessons come alive for the young men—from connecting the classroom to the community through service learning projects to combining students' love of music with computer science for a conversation with Usher during the international Hour of Code.
Garcia offers career and technology classes through Project Lead the Way, a national leader in science, technology, engineering and math programs. With a rigorous curriculum and higher education and industry partnerships, students develop the skills needed to succeed in the global economy.
The academy invests in the whole child, nurturing scholars’ creative minds and talents through robust fine arts programs. Garcia athletes have the opportunity to shape their bodies for excellence through Olympic-style training programs.
Community support is key to the students’ success. Garcia connects each student with champions on campus and through the national My Brother's Keeper initiative.
Garcia is part of the LBJ and Reagan family of schools. As early college high schools, LBJ and Northeast offer students the opportunity to earn college credit and graduate with a diploma in one hand and an associate’s degree from Austin Community College in the other.
