LEAH Schools Downtown Academy (LDA) is a licensed, early childhood education center that provides a safe, faith-based learning environment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
We believe, and research confirms, that quality, well-planned early education experiences provide children with long-term benefits academically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Formerly known as Upbring School of Discovery and Leadership, LDA opened in the spring of 2021 after being acquired by the Lutheran Education Association of Houston (LEAH).
LEAH was established in 1949 to meet the demand for students enrolled in Lutheran elementary schools in Houston to continue their education in a Lutheran high school. In addition to the newly established LEAH Schools Downtown Academy, LEAH operates three other private, college preparatory Christian schools throughout the greater Houston area with a combined enrollment of over 1000 students and more than 175 faculty and staff:
• Lutheran South Academy (Grades PK3-12)
• Lutheran High North (Grades 9-12)
• Westlake Preparatory Academy (Grades PK3-8)
LEAH Schools stand strong in the tradition of providing a superior academic experience integrated with a consistent, Christian approach to learning and meaningful ministry for our students. It is our hope that you too can become a part of this great tradition.
