Our Story

In 2017, Democracy Prep Public Schools — a Harlem-based network of nonprofit public charter schools — received authorization to expand its highly successful model into Clark County. Rather than build a new program from scratch, Democracy Prep entered into a partnership with the Andre Agassi College Prep Academy and has transformed the existing school into Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus. Fusing a rigorous instructional program with a full complement of arts and athletics offerings, DPAC aims to be the highest performing public school choice for families in Las Vegas.
