About USC College Prep- Pico Union/Westlake

USC College Prep- Pico Union/Westlake is a new charter high school powered by Ednovate in partnership with the University of Southern California. We will open just west of downtown Los Angeles in the fall of 2017 and will expand one grade level per year until we serve students in grades 9-12 in 2020.

Our mission is to empower our students to use their college degrees and careers to make a positive multigenerational change. We will provide students and families a safe and nurturing school culture that has high expectations and that delivers a rigorous and personalized college prep experience. Our innovative classroom approach allows students to learn at their own pace through a curriculum that uses online lessons, digital platforms, small-group learning, coaching and one-on-one instruction. Along with personalizing the learning experience, we care about instilling a deep sense of purpose in our students and developing valuable relationships in our school community. Redesigning the high school experience requires that staff members reflect constantly on the impact of their actions and collaborate to continuously improve their practice.


The Operations Manager (OM) will provide overall direction and execution of all day-to-day functions at the school and will ensure seamless, efficient and high quality school operations. This includes managing logistics for special events; facility needs; budgets; administrative databases; and health, safety, and nutrition compliance.  The OM will manage the front office staff and will ensure that the school's visitors and families experience a high-quality customer experience in every interaction. The OM will also supervise the nutrition staff and maintenance staff and work closely with teachers, admin, and families.

  • Is passionate about increasing the college attainment rate in educationally underserved populations and working with families of diverse backgrounds
  • Has an unwavering belief in academic success for all students and commitment to our mission, discipline model, and vision
  • Enjoys a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment and is eager to build new systems or adapt existing ones
