Degrees of Freedom
Democracy Prep has launched a new program called Degrees of Freedom. Degrees of Freedom is a “new kind of college experience that is affordable, flexible, and inclusive.” It’s offered through two programs-within-programs, a gap year program and a 2+2 program, and is designed by Democracy Prep alums!
The program has a greater emphasis on identity and traditional college—although the gap year programs creates space and exploration in the career and traditional college space. The minimum 2.5 GPA requirement for the gap year program is flexible, but the minimum 2.75 GPA for the 2+2 program is much less so.
The app for both the gap year (Freedom Year) and the 2+2 program (Liberation Launch) is live. They are hosting a virtual information session on 2/26.
More information about the program is attached, and we’ll talk more about it tomorrow, but I did not want to withhold any info!
