Academia & Education
Community College Prep Academy Adult Public Charter School
The mission of Community College Preparatory Academy (CCPrep) is to provide the education and skills development that will empower and prepare under-credited adults for postsecondary education success, viable employment and lifelong learning. We raise funds to support tech access for our adult learners.
We provide pro bono services in coordination with student projects, to help connect folks and teams to our alumni and partners, and to share opportunities within our greater community to learn or get support through learning or access to partners. We want to explore providing discounts or free course options for front-line workers, DC government and citizens.
