The D-PREP High School Program is based on the Expeditionary Learning whole school design model. This model focuses on delivering student achievement across three dimensions: Mastery of Skills and knowledge, character development, and authentic high-quality student work. 

The academic program requires students to complete 4 years in high school, from grade 9 to grade 12.  Completion of this program will grant students with an American high school diploma.

Key Components of our High School Program

  • Small, personalized learning environments in classrooms and across the school;
  • Students’ progress and development are supported in partnership with with advisors/crew leaders who stay with them across multiple years.
  • Internships or mentorships in key areas of interest in the Grade 11/12
  • Diverse offerings, such as Design-thinking, Presentation & Performance Skills, and Global Impact.
  • We offer a wide offering of Advanced Placement courses, including the AP Capstone Diploma program which is designed to be academically rigorous and develops independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills. AP Capstone is centered on two AP courses — AP Seminar and AP Research — which are designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study experienced in other AP courses. A minimum of 6 AP courses are required to obtain the AP Capstone Diploma.

Advanced Placement Program

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program allows students to take AP Courses which serve as introductory college level courses developed by the College Board. Upon completion of these courses and passing the year end AP exam (score of 3 and above), students may submit test results to colleges and universities for college credit.

**These are possible AP courses, not courses DPREP is committed to provide.
