“Democracy Prep runs all of its schools on public dollars which allows us to meet the challenge of reforming public schooling in America.”

To prove what is possible for public schools across America, Democracy Prep operates its schools exclusively on public dollars. However, to fulfill our mission of ensuring that our scholars are successful in college and citizenship, we do accept philanthropic dollars to support our scholars attending college.

Support Democracy Prep

We cannot wait. Each year that parents go without high-quality school options, their children are being denied a path to college success and active participation in our democracy. Democracy Prep seeks to create those options for families, now.
