Principal Michael Daly says,
The tuitionfree, public charter school will serve grades K through 4, adding a grade per year up to 8th grade.
DeKalb Prep will offer a rigorous college preparatory education utilizing the internationally‐acclaimed Mosaica® Education model and Paragon® Curriculum, which allows students to acquire superior academic skills as well as the critical thinking and collaborative learning that are necessary to thrive in college and beyond in the 21st century.
The Academy, with its 7 ½ hour extended day and 192 day calendar, will provide significantly more time on task for students to master skills and to internalize rigorous content and make it their own.
