Los Angeles College Prep Academy (LACPA) is a small, comprehensive, college preparatory school located in the Northeast area of the City of Los Angeles. Ms. Sims (Executive Director) saw a need to create a more inclusive program that met the needs of all students in LA County that was rigorous and held to the mission of college preparedness. As a former admissions analyst for the Cal State University system, she understood exactly what schools are looking for when analyzing transcripts, looking for well-rounded students and looking for students with a story of their own. It was important and imperative that this school reflects student/family needs, individuality, and provides support that surpasses traditional high school. LACPA is WASC accredited, all students are offered A-G courses from Honors to Advance Placement. Students remain on track for graduation and continue on to higher education attending top universities. In the last three years, our students have soared. Graduation rate remains over 95%, College entry rate remains over 95% and test scores continue to rise. We have a comprehensive program for our EL and International Student Population, as well as a rigorous Special Education program where these students are also engaged in honors and AP classes. LACPA is currently partnering with local community colleges so students may be concurrently enrolled in HS and college to successfully receive an AA degree upon completion of high school. LACPA is dedicated to the improved service of all students and thrive to prepare students for college and beyond. If you would like to become a part of this innovative and dynamic family, we welcome you!
