Meet Our Principal

Welcome to Animo Watts College Preparatory Academy! 

Our Warrior staff and faculty are honored to serve the Willowbrook, Watts, Compton, and South Los Angeles communities, providing free, high quality, college-prep education. We are a small school with a culture of learning with many advanced placement, honors, and intervention courses to fit the needs of our students. We also offer a California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) athletics program and a full after school program. 

At Animo Watts College Preparatory Academy, we firmly believe that all stakeholders are critical in the education process. Please call, email, or visit our main office if you have questions about our school, or would like to discuss your current or prospective student.
