Our Story

Education in Baton Rouge is changing, with more choices for all families. More options will mean better results for our children. Democracy Prep Baton Rouge is a part of that change. We are part of Democracy Prep Public Schools, a network of high performing charter schools with a proven track record of success in New York and New Jersey. 100% of our graduates go to college. This, combined with a founding team with deep roots in Baton Rouge, will make us a successful school that’s here to stay.
