Pablo Cesar Villavicencio

Chief Executive Officer

Most recently, Pablo served as Alliance’s President, where he oversaw the critical functions of school management, teaching & learning, and the work with diverse learners, school leadership development, counseling & college success, and Alliance’s focus on scholars, families and communities.

Pablo joined Alliance in 2017 as Chief Schools Officer. He has been responsible for setting the vision for coaching and development of Alliance’s school leaders. Pablo was integral in launching Alliance’s first Scholars, Families, and Communities team, which has focused on ensuring that Alliance schools address the whole child through social-emotional learning practices, and connections with families and the community. Pablo was integral in developing the School Instructional Support team, which was a school support model designed to improve teaching and learning. Most recently, Pablo oversaw Alliance’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the pivot to distance learning, and enacting comprehensive health and safety protocols, in addition to Alliance’s return to in-person learning in August 2021.

Like many children of immigrants, Pablo was underserved in low-performing urban schools in East Los Angeles. Pablo was the first in his family to graduate from college — the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to returning to Los Angeles, Pablo served as a Deputy Chief for the Oakland Unified School District where he focused on innovation for low-performing schools. He was also the Director of Principal Leadership and Support for High Schools in San Francisco Unified School District supervising principals. Before he dedicated time in Northern California, he served families in the Bronx, New York as a teacher and Academic Dean before becoming the Founding Principal of a New York City public school. Pablo holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Economy of Industrialized Societies from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master of Education in Dual Language/Bilingual General Education from the Bank Street College of Education. He is a Teach for America, New Leaders, New York City Leadership Academy, and Cambiar Catalyst Fellowship Alum.
