New Dean of Students Brian Acosta has been interested in working with students since day one. 

Before taking his position here, Acosta began his administrative journey at John A. Sutter Middle School where he also served as a dean. He found the position fulfilling, choosing to continue in Lake Balboa College Preparatory Magnet K-12.

I liked doing what I did, helping the students, so I said let me give it a try,” Acosta said.

He decided to give this school a try after hearing positive things about its programs and students.

“I heard lots of good things about Van Nuys so I thought ‘okay I’ll give it a try’ and so far it has been good,” he said. 

Acosta is in charge of discipline and safety on campus. He also tracks the academic progress of students and attempts to address attendance and disciplinary issues.

I am hoping to help the students succeed,” Acosta said.
