The Lutheran Education Association of Houston (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. LEAH opened the first Lutheran high school in Houston in the early 50s, and then followed with a second school in the north section of Houston in 1979, and a third school, an elementary and middle school, in the western section of Houston in 2008.
LEAH currently operates three private, Christian schools in the Houston area with a combined enrollment of over 1000 students and more than 175 faculty and staff.
