As a top-ranked private research institution, the University of Southern California offers everything you are looking for: world-class resources on a human scale, more academic opportunities than any other American university, a vibrant campus life, a location in the heart of a dynamic world center and the lifelong support of the Trojan Family.
The University of Southern California is one of a small number of research institutions on which our country depends for a steady stream of new knowledge, art, and technology. USC has nearly $900 million in annual research expenditures, is ranked second in the nation among all universities in the size of its federally funded computer science research program, and has the second largest graduate program in science, engineering, and health of all private research universities.
One of two secular private schools to have ranked in the top 10 percent of standardized testing in the U.S., and a feeder to L.A.'s top middle and high schools, Carlthorp, which is home to the offspring of a current network head and a superhero and where school functions can feel like red-carpet affairs, offers a rigorous, traditional, athletic achievement-oriented environment. Mothers who've been through the admissions process advise not letting your kid show up to the interview in a superhero costume: "That's the kind of thing you can get away with at Crossroads," says one. A senior partner at a top talent agency says, "The teachers were spectacular. It's really good for a kid who thrives with structure." Although 11 percent of the 280 students receive financial aid and 46 percent identified as minority, the uniforms-required school, founded in 1939, may not always seem so multi-culti: "It is filled with people who are country-club rich," says another parent. Carlthorp hopefuls must have two letters of recommendation; siblings are given priority access.
"It's one of the most buzzed-about schools this year among parents," says Christina Simon, a school expert and author of Beyond the Brochure. David Geffen's foray into education, with its private-school structure, its association with UCLA and the promise of cutting-edge educational approaches, $100 million in funding and a prime Westside location, attracts industry folk eager for more options. Set to open its doors in September, the Geffen Academy will begin with 160 students in sixth, seventh and ninth grades, building toward a student body of 620 students by year four. Up to 50 percent of families will be drawn from UCLA staff and faculty; 45 percent overall can expect financial aid. The tuition includes all expenses, field trips and meals, which will be provided by the UCLA dining services. Perks include extended hours, a makers space, robotics and potential access to UCLA's research facilities.
This traditional "school on the hill" with 336 students on 11 acres has a stellar record as a feeder to L.A.'s top high schools. The three most important priorities, says director of admissions Judy Hirsch: "Academic excellence, [we're a] family school, and character development." Real family participation is key: "Every week was three hours of library duty," says former JTD mom and ex-Good Morning America anchor Lisa McRee, "and nobody would dream of swanning in and having their nanny do it." JTD, which opened its doors in 1929, has offered more than $500,000 in assistance for the 2017-18 year, but, like any number of private schools, has had to keep an eye on such displays as $25,000 Disney princess birthday parties for kindergarteners. "Not cool," says McRee, an opinion shared by the school's longtime (now deceased) headmaster Ray Michaud, who declared that birthday fetes during the academic year should be held at the school gym. For a first-day breakfast for first-graders, parents once opted for a florist truck, a balloon arch that costs several thousand dollars and Edible Arrangements for every table, which "makes middle-income and scholarship parents not want to join a committee," says McRee, whose husband, Don Granger, is president of production at Skydance. Last year's head of school was replaced by Rose Helm on July 1; she worked at JTD as an English teacher 14 years ago and at San Francisco's Hamlin School for girls.
Westland parents are a devoted bunch. Says Barbara DeSantis, whose son with Curb Your Enthusiasm exec producer Larry Charles matriculated from a Westside private school: "We were a transfer family, and the acceptance, the appropriate boundaries were the antithesis of the parent-infested uniform school culture we had come from." Active since 1949, Westland moves, starting with the 2017-18 school year, to a flexible tuition model with a goal of making the school more financially accessible. "Affordability is a huge issue for a lot of families," says Marcia Capparela, assistant head director of admissions. Last year, 27 percent of families received flexible tuition, reducing cost by roughly half, with nearly a quarter of the students being children of color. The outdoors is a big part of the school ethos, and Westland kids can work in the organic edible community garden or collect eggs from the chicken coop. Parental involvement is required. Parents, who say the food is excellent, with a restaurant-quality kitchen, are on rotation for making hot, home-cooked meals for events. "It's key to who we are," says Capparela of the volunteering that can range from field-trip driving to committee work. Multi-age classrooms are the norm; graduates have gone on to every top private middle and high school in L.A.
Polytechnic is the oldest nonprofit private school in SoCal, founded in 1907. Since then, its graduates have included Howard Hawks, Julia Child, Disney Studios president of production Sean Bailey, Masterpiece Theatre exec producer Rebecca Eaton and actor-filmmaker Mike White. Fox Media Networks chairman and CEO Peter Rice serves on the board. Parents who are in the biz make up no more than 10 percent of the community, estimates Matthew Bickell, vp business affairs, strategy and analysis at Sony Pictures. "It's nice to step out and see a different group of folks than I would encounter through work," says Bickell. The campus covers 15 acres and 27 buildings, many of which are open-air and designed by Myron Hunt, the architect behind the Huntington Library. The educational approach for the approximately 860 students veers traditional, and the rigor shows stellar results: Between 2012 and 2016, the school sent 18 students to Harvard, 29 to Stanford and 42 to USC.
"My kids leap out of the car to get to school. If they could board, they would live at Viewpoint," says Nickelodeon executive vp talent, music and events Shelly Sumpter Gillyard, who has kids at the 1,215-student school nestled on a 40-acre campus at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains. Parents can expect an academics-focused education, supplemented with electives such as robotics, filmmaking, mock trial and oceanography. "Your child gets a well-rounded experience, and there's a lot of individual attention," says one powerful industry dad. While the one percent is well-represented (in one recent upper class, four students came from families with private jets) and industry names including television executive Steve Mosko, Tom Cruise, producer David Hoberman, Heather Locklear and even Donald Trump send or have sent children there (Tiffany Trump graduated in 2012), school advisers say the school feels relatively heterogeneous. Students of color make up one-third of the student body. "Affluence is not worn on people's sleeves. It feels like a very nonpressured environment for the kids to not be caught up in the L.A. of it all," says Sumpter Gillyard. A building spree has added a performing arts center, a new library and modern athletic facilities. 041b061a72
