High School Academic Program
The High School academic program develops ethical global citizens that impact our society through leadership, service, and honor. D-PREP works with students to develop a course of study that brings out the unique strengths of each individual and inspires them to passionately pursue their interests with the aim to better the world around them.
DREAM and DISCOVER one’s strengths and passions
In the 9th grade, all students enroll in “Futures” which is a course based on knowing oneself and discovering one’s passions. With this in mind, students will be prepared to choose a course of study based on their strengths and interests.
DELIVER: Courses of Study
D-PREP offers four courses of study packaged into four unique pathways. Each pathway contains an internship experience and a D-PREP Advanced Project. The Internship is a real-world experience related to the topic of the pathway. The D-PREP Advanced project is an in-depth learning experience that serves as an application of knowledge that must be completed by the Fall semester of the senior year.
