Frequently Asked Questions

What will the school day be for students in K-12?

What is the uniform situation?
All DPAC students are required to wear Democracy Prep uniform shirts with the DPAC crest (from Campus Club), along with khaki bottoms. Please review our uniform fliers for more information.
Will Democracy Prep have sports and extracurricular activities?
Yes. During the 2019-2020 school year we will offer football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, cheer, track & field, and softball. Additionally, each of our schools will have clubs for students that are coordinated by students and facilitated by teachers.
If I was an Agassi Prep high school student have my graduation requirements changed?
Graduation requirements for students in the Classes of 2018, 2019, and 2020 will remain consistent with the current Agassi Prep requirements with the addition of two new requirements to ensure our scholars are college ready upon graduation:

  • Each student must take and pass four years of math in order to graduate (previously students were only required to take 3 years of math).
  • Each senior will take a civics course that enables them to design a community service based project they will administer to make an impact on their community.
Can I visit my student during the school day?
Yes! We do ask that in the first six weeks, parents and families allow for the systems and routines to solidify before visiting the classroom; thus no visits in that timeframe. After the first six weeks, parents are allowed to have 20-minute classroom visits. Parents receive weekly progress reports (a physical copy and emailed digitally) that share academic and behavioral data. The elementary distributes progress reports each Friday, and the middle and high schools do it each Wednesday.
How do families stay involved?
We have staff to assist in developing priorities and projects for our family volunteers. Please contact Ms. Garcia for those opportunities. Additionally, each of our campuses partners with families to create charitable and civic events that positively impact their respective communities.
What is your college acceptance rate? Do students stayed enrolled?
100% of our graduates go on to four-year colleges and universities. 83% of our graduates are still enrolled in college, compared to the national average of ~70%.
