School Year And Summer Virtual Services

Virtual programs allow our students to access LEAP’s services remotely. Through virtual academic support and enrichment, mentoring, and college and career advising we can make sure that our low-income, first-generation-to-college, and English learner students do not suffer learning loss during this challenging time.
