Democracy Prep BR provides a rigorous educational experience through the use of rigorous educational experiences coupled with a focus on civic engagement.
GO TO COLLEGE.
CHANGE THE WORLD.
Our citizen-scholars are prepared with explicit knowledge, skills, and dispositions to take leadership roles in civil society and democratic institutions upon graduation from college.
We believe meaningful engagement with the arts is integral to scholarship and active citizenship. To reflect this value, every school employs full-time arts educators as part of their core academic team that teaches all scholars. We also offer a variety of after-school activities and partnerships to support specialized growth and training in the arts.
A high-quality physical education program is fundamental to our scholars' educational experience. The program is designed to instill a lifetime of physical competence, fitness, and enjoyment in all scholars.
Welcome to Democracy Prep Baton Rouge. Democracy Prep BR opened in 2015 to provide quality educational experiences and resources to the scholars and families of the Baton Rouge community. Our school community is a part of a network of open-enrollment, high-performing, public charter schools operating in New York City, Las Vegas, and San Antonio.
The mission of Democracy Prep is to educate responsible citizen-scholars for success in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship. A simple philosophy guides Democracy Prep staff, scholars, and alumni alike:
Work Hard. Go to College. Change the World!
