Job Description:

New Orleans College Prep is seeking college student interns to work in Communications. If you are interested in learning about non-profit communications and marketing, this is a chance to work at a network of schools that ensures college success for all children. Moreover, your work would make a lasting contribution to the revitalization of New Orleans.

 

Background:

New Orleans College Prep’s (NOCP) mission is to prepare students with academic and life skills for success in college, career, and beyond. Over the past ten years, NOCP has grown from a single grade of 100 students, to now operating 4 charter schools spanning grades PK-12, serving over 1,400 students on 4 campuses. NOCP will continue to expand its services to additional campuses throughout New Orleans in the coming years, ultimately growing to 8-10 charters under its management. NOCP is serving its part in a broader city-wide vision to make New Orleans the first 100% high-performing urban school system in our nation’s history.

NOCP has achieved significant academic achievement gains:

 

  • The percentage of NOCP 3rd-8th graders scoring 'Basic' or above on the state exams increased by 22% between 2011 and 2013.

  • Only 25% of NOCP’s founding 6th graders were performing at 'Basic' or above on state exams when they first enrolled in our middle school. 85% scored 18 or above on the ACT as 11th graders.

  • In 2012, NOCP’s schools were amongst the top five highest gaining open enrollment public schools in the city.

  • More detailed information about our academic performance can be found on our website by visiting www.nolacollegeprep.org and clicking 'Our Results.'

 

We are very proud of our school staff, parents, and scholars for these achievements, but we have much more to accomplish in order to realize our mission of 100% of our students prepared for success in a rigorous 4-year college and post-secondary options.
