Job Description:



Lawrence D.

He/she will create an environment that encourages learning and will explore various concepts of government, geography, history, economics, civic ideals, and current events. 


New Orleans College Prep's mission is to prepare students with academic and life skills for success in college, career, and beyond. Over the past 10 years, NOCP has grown from a single school with a single grade of 100 students, to now operating a network of schools serving over 1,500 students from various backgrounds --including English Language Learners as well as students with exceptionalities.  If you are relentless about seeing all students achieve at high levels, this is a chance to work at a school that does whatever it takes to ensure college success for all children.


About New Orleans College Prep

NOCP is producing significant student achievement gains for our students, 98% of whom are African-American, low-income, and traditionally underserved by the New Orleans school system. Recent highlights of our achievements include:

  • Walter L. Cohen College Prep achieved a 100% college acceptance rate for three years in a row.
  • Walter L. Cohen College Prep has consistently improved students’ academic performance and achieved a "B" school performance score (SPS); nearly doubling its SPS in just 4 years.
  • Our most recent takeover of a failing school, Lawrence D. Crocker College Prep, achieved the highest growth in the city on the state tests in 2014, growing from the lowest performing elementary school in the city to scoring above the district average after the first year of NOCP management.

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.
