Meet Our Principal

As principal of USC East College Prep, Drew brings tremendous excitement for working with students on the East side of LA and helping them make their own Positive Multigenerational Change. Prior, he was the Principal Intern at Catalyst­-Maria High School in Chicago. For the previous four years, Drew served as a science teacher, 11th grade level chair and science department chair at UIC College Prep, a campus of Noble Street Charter Schools. Drew is most proud of his 14 advisees – 100% of his advisory attended a 4­ year university! – and of all of his 11th graders in Chicago – they earned the highest average ACT scores of any non-­selective enrollment school in the city of Chicago for 3 years running. A proud Blue Devil, Drew graduated from Duke University with a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and later earned his Master's Degree from National-­Louis University. In his free time, Drew loves to stay active – he's been learning how to surf!
