Creating Opportunities through Education

In 2001, the Foundation opened the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy (Agassi Prep), a public charter school that strives to provide children in Historic West Las Vegas with a first-class K-12 education to prepare them for excellence in college and beyond.

Agassi Prep was conceived in the belief that nothing has a greater impact on children’s lives than the education they receive, and that all children deserve outstanding academic experiences, regardless of what neighborhoods they live in. Ours is a climate of hope and high expectations, where we nurture children but also provide the focus and discipline they need to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.

After successfully graduating 9 senior classes, Agassi Prep made the decision to turn over operations to Democracy Prep, a high achieving charter management organization with 17 high performing charter schools in the nation.  Please see the press release below for further information and you can also visit
