Mission and Vision
Downtown College Preparatory (DCP) is the first charter high school in Silicon Valley, and the only school that explicitly prepares underachieving students for college success.
DCP targets low-achieving urban minority students who will be the first in their family to go to college.
DCP is a small (400 students), academic school characterized by high standards, a rigorous curriculum, a strict code of conduct, and a commitment to college success for all students. As a charter school, DCP has the independence 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 reflects the spirit of innovation and competition that drives Silicon Valley. DCP is positioned to be a model for excellence in public education, affecting not only San Jose students but high schools throughout Silicon Valley and California.
DCP will graduate its first class of students in 2004.
