USC Hybrid High School (USC HHS) is a growing open-enrollment
college preparatory charter high school located in Downtown
Los Angeles created in partnership with the University of
Southern California. In the 2013-14 school year, USC HHS serves
approximately 210 ninth and tenth graders and will expand
to twelfth grade by Fall 2015. USC Hybrid High School’s mission
is to prepare students from traditionally underserved communities

USC HHS combines a traditional “no excuses” model with an
innovative teacher-driven blended learning model that embeds
technology across the curriculum and throughout the school
day. Students get a truly personalized education, using a

the percentage of students who graduate from a four year college,
believing that will help them make a positive multigenerational
change in their families, community, nation or world.
USC HHS is the first campus of Ednovate, Inc., a 501(c)3
non-profit charter management organization. Ednovate will
expand over time to operate multiple high-achieving public
charter school campuses and set the bar for what is possible
in a high school blended learning environment.

using technology to create a personalized educational experience
for every student. S/he will regularly assess student mastery

group of students, ensuring that advisees meet their full
