Founded in 2012, and located in the heart of Hollywood, ESLA is an independent, college preparatory day school serving grades six through twelve. Our core virtues are Generosity, Integrity, Curiosity, and Courage. Over half of our students’ tuition expense is made possible through donor-funded scholarships. This allows the school to recruit and enroll the brightest, most dedicated students from all walks of life. We are growing a community that reflects the vibrant diversity of Los Angeles. Our model is founded upon the belief that the best educational tool for any young person is the collaboration and camaraderie of peers from different backgrounds—peers who have stories and perspectives to share, the stuff of life that simply cannot be gleaned from a textbook.
