At Democracy Prep, we are committed to ensuring that our scholars are well-rounded citizens and knowledgeable voters. Our arts and athletics programs ensure that is the case. Our scholars study the language and culture of South Korea to expand their own horizons. Democracy Prep Pathways is a program born from a desire to do more for students with severe learning challenges.
