The Lexington Education and Partnership (LEAP) Academy is a graduated, skills-based, after-school and out-of-school program for youth in grades K - 12.  We provide continuous academic and enrichment support to underserved and underrepresented youth in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Equine, Agriculture, Literacy and Arts Education.  Our mission is to bridge the knowledge, skill, and achievement gaps that prevent access to college and career opportunities in these fields.   


We seek to accomplish this by focusing on awareness and exploration (grades K-5); knowledge acquisition and skill development  (grades 6-8); and employability and engagement (grades 9-12).  Our Sponsors In Education consists of a network of Academic, Business and Community organizations that help provide experiential learning opportunities that connect-the-dots for youth.   As a result, underserved and underrepresented youth gain the confidence, capability, and connections to move to the next level.
