Organization Overview

Partnerships to Uplift Communities (PUC) Schools is comprised of a non-profit network of public charter schools designed to significantly increase high school graduation rates, college entrance, and college graduation rates for underserved students in North-East Los Angeles, and the North-East San Fernando Valley.

Our mission at PUC Schools is to develop and manage high-quality charter schools in densely populated urban communities with overcrowded and low-achieving schools. We create school programs and cultures that promote college graduation for all students. We uplift and revitalize communities through the development of educational and other supportive partnerships.

They must apply and be admitted to the Loyola Marymount credential program which will run simultaneously with the teacher residency. The Alumni Teacher Resident will be placed at a PUC school and paired with a mentor teacher for the residency year as a co-teacher. Upon successful completion of the residency and LMU credential requirements, the Alumni Teacher Resident will be eligible for hire as a Teacher of Record after one year.
