The Episcopal School of Los Angeles is a young, vibrant, and rapidly growing endeavor—with grassroots beginnings and ambitious goals. Incorporated in 2009, ESLA began by providing tuition-free afterschool programs that offered playful, project-based learning in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). In 2012 ESLA opened its doors to twenty-eight full-time students in the middle school—our first brave group of scholastic pioneers. Since then our community has expanded to include over 140 students in grades six through twelve, and our school has developed one of the most vibrant liberal arts curricula in the city. ESLA will proudly graduate its first senior class in the spring of 2017, and will grow to include 350 students—our target capacity—in the next five years.
