Partnerships to Uplift Communities (PUC Schools) is a non-profit charter school organization consisting of a total of 12 schools authorized by Los Angeles Unified School District, currently serving the NE San Fernando Valley and NE Los Angeles. The 12 schools include 3 sets of middle and high schools that were recently combined under the charter petitions of the middle schools, in order to ensure a feeder pattern from grades 6 through 12. The schools that have been combined include PUC CALS Charter Middle School & PUC CALS Early College High School, PUC Community Charter Middle School & PUC Community Charter Early College High School, and PUC Triumph Charter Academy & PUC Triumph Charter High School. There are also 2 elementary schools in the network, one in NE Los Angeles and one in the NE San Fernando Valley. The remaining schools are middle and high schools. The schools are designed to significantly increase college entrance and graduation rates for underserved students in the 2 Los Angeles communities referenced above.
Partnerships to Uplift Communities is served by another non-profit organization, PUC National, which was created in order to support and enhance the achievement of the mission of the schools and also replicate the model in other communities.
PUC Schools was founded on a belief that superior schools build superior communities. Our current schools have achieved outstanding results with our students, and we look forward to bringing that success to more students in the communities we serve.
We welcome you to learn more about our schools and our vision for students.
