College Bridge Academy - Watts
The Los Angeles Education Corps is to create and manage charter schools that provide small, supportive learning communities that meet the educational and personal needs of disadvantaged students resulting in changed lives, families, and generations. Each campus is a small learning community with approximately 100-130 students. Class sizes are small (15-20 students per class) and have caring teachers who are willing to work with students to help them catch back up. Each campus has one or more high quality nonprofit partners (such as Los Angeles Conservation Corps, YouthBuild or a Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act program) that provide students with a variety of wrap-around services, such as job training, counseling and case management, etc.
