Staff - Who We Are.png

Vista College Prep is a public charter school that was founded in 2013 with the firm belief that demographics do not determine destiny. Over the last four years, we have grown from our founding team of seven to nearly thirty staff members today; all of whom are still committed to our founding cause: Delivering the best education possible.
