To everyone who went out and voted, regardless of who you voted for, we thank you for being active citizens.
Democracy Prep's amazing fourth grade citizen-scholars, the "Harlem Prep Hawks", sing their civic message loud and proud to the tune of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." We hope they inspired you to "#VoteForSomebody!"
Democracy Prep is a "Straight A" network, with 2,000 students across seven campuses in Harlem, NY and Camden, NJ, proving what is possible in urban education. We are preparing our responsible citizen-scholars to succeed in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship.
Work Hard. Go To College. Change the World!
