Ednovate was co-founded by USC Rossier School of Education and CEO Oliver Sicat in an effort to redesign the American high school experience and create Positive Multigenerational Change. Today, Ednovate operates six college-prep, tuition-free, charter high schools in Los Angeles and Orange County, primarily serving first-generation college-bound students from traditionally underserved communities. In line with its mission to effect positive change through education, Ednovate has expanded its reach through the creation of Ednovate’s Virtual Academy (EVA). With a vision to enroll 400 students across grades 9-12, EVA aims to empower students through a rigorous and supportive virtual learning environment.
