Alliance College-Ready Public Schools was founded in 2004 based on the belief that all young people––regardless of ZIP code, income, ability, or background–– are capable of achieving at high levels. Alliance is now one of the largest and most successful public charter school networks in the nation, operating 26 high-performing middle and high schools serving 13,000 scholars in Los Angeles communities that have been systemically oppressed. In our 16th school year, Alliance has a proven record of success: though 93% of incoming sixth graders come to Alliance reading below grade level, 95% of Alliance graduates have been accepted to college—including 73% to a four-year university. We strive to truly change the life trajectories of our scholars and communities, with a goal of 75% of Alliance graduates completing a four-year college degree. Now is the time to join our collaborative community to make long-lasting change across Los Angeles.
At Alliance, we believe that all of our scholars can achieve at high levels. That’s why we’ve raised our aspirations – to be in the top quartile of all schools in California and to ensure our scholars enroll in and graduate from college. Reporting to the Vice President, Counseling and College Success, the Director, School Counseling is responsible for supporting middle school and high school counseling programs across all 26 Alliance schools, with an emphasis on the academic and social emotional development of scholars to best prepare them for college readiness and college access.
