Marymount California University Names Director of High School Site Program

Marymount California University announced the appointment of Lynn Busia, EdD, as its director of the High School Site Program. Dr. Busia will lead the new program, which launches this fall, between the University and the 10 high schools of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District and Newport Mesa Unified School District, as well as San Pedro High School and Mary Star of the Sea High School.

The High School Site Program gives students the ability to earn a total of 60 units of college-level credit while attending classes at their local high school site. Classes will be offered after school, during the summer, and online and will run concurrently with selected advanced placement and International Baccalaureate courses. Many of these courses are preapproved for transfer into California State Universities and University of California schools as well as private colleges and universities, which means that students graduating high school with credits from these courses will be preparing to enter colleges and universities with an advanced class standing.

Dr. Busia was most recently employed as administrator of pupil services with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District. Since 2007 she has taught as an adjunct faculty member at the Institute of School Leadership and Administration at Loyola Marymount University. Dr. Busia received her doctorate in organizational change and leadership from Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology.
