Lazear is EFCPS' first Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics (STEAM) school.


At Lazear Charter Academy we are change agents who use quality education as a tool to dismantle systems of oppression. We exist because of the power, resilience, and love of the families of the Fruitvale, and we leverage that strength in all we do.  Guided by love and connection, we develop whole people with the belief that our academic, social, and emotional potential is unlimited. We know that access to opportunity and an equitable education is our human right and we use a multidisciplinary STEAM program to cultivate empathetic systems thinkers and lifelong learners who ask critical questions, create innovative solutions to complex problems, and express ideas confidently. This approach empowers world citizens who advocate for equity, justice, and the change we want to see in the world.

A charter school authorized by the Alameda County Office of Education.
