A Second Chance

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.

The Los Angeles Education Corps (LAEC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that is the charter management organization overseeing College Bridge Academy (CBA) charter school and The Education Corps (TEC) charter school. LAEC's schools are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and operate through the Inyo County Office of Education.

Located in impoverished pockets of Los Angeles that are notorious for crime, gangs and failing schools, LAEC's campuses provide an oasis for youth and young adults who understand that their value is not dictated by their environment. Students who did not finish high school (for any reason) as well as those looking for an alternative to the under-resourced schools in their neighborhoods are equally welcome.

LAEC oversees its six small, supportive learning communities in partnership with highly regarded local agencies. In most cases, LAEC campuses are housed within their facilities. Together, we are actively engaging urban young people in holistic services that prepare them for a healthy, productive adulthood. Check out our locations and partners below:
