About Downtown College Prep

DCP prepares underachieving students who will be the first in their families to go to college to thrive at four-year universities. Downtown College Prep (DCP) is the first charter high school in Silicon Valley, and the only school that explicitly prepares underachieving students for college success. DCP is a small (400 students) academic school characterized – more... by high standards, a demanding curriculum, a strict code of conduct, and a commitment to college success for all students. As a charter school, DCP has the ability to break away from the large, comprehensive urban school model to implement a rigorous college-prep program unlike any currently available to the students of downtown San Jose. DCP has a singular goal for every student: graduates of DCP are able to matriculate at four-year colleges and be successful there. Committed to outcomes, DCP benchmarks and measures specific objectives to ensure achievement of this goal. DCP performance outcomes are designed to promote academic resilience and independence among students and families. The performance metrics for students and parents include: , Completion of University of California entrance requirements , Parent participation in College Readiness classes , Matriculation at four-year colleges and universities DCP reflects the spirit of innovation and competition that drives Silicon Valley. DCP is a model for excellence in public education, affecting not only San Jose students but high schools throughout Silicon Valley and California. DCP has graduated 173 students since 2004--85% are on track to earn a four-year degree. – lessMore from ZoomInfo »
