About Agassi Prep
"I have been very blessed and had many opportunities available to me," said Andre Agassi, who donates not only funding but also his time one-on-one with children. "Children today face so many obstacles. If I can make a positive impact on at least one child's life, then it has all been worthwhile."
Andre Agassi believes that all children deserve the chance to excel in life, to fulfill their individual potential and realize their dreams. A native Las Vegan, Andre believes that nothing has a greater impact on children's development than the education they receive. As a result, The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation created The Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy (AACPA).
The Andre Agassi College Preparatory is a national model charter school whose goal is to offer academic programs designed to enhance a child's character, respect, motivation and self-discipline. Located in the heart of Las Vegas' most at-risk neighborhood, Agassi Prep, as the school has been nicknamed, was created specifically to improve skill levels and combat lowered academic expectations while creating a climate of hope among this community's most challenged children. Advanced technology, smaller class sizes and extended school hours are just some of the practices the AACPA utilizes to achieve a higher standard of education.
Agassi Prep creates an environment that rewards students for positive behavior and disciplines unacceptable conduct. Teachers, parents and students each follow a Commitment to Excellence and a Code of Respect. Community leaders, educators and parents work together to establish high expectations for all students. By supporting the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation and Agassi Prep, you are sharing in Andre's vision: that together we can provide hope, so all children have a chance to succeed.
