Kanye West to Open Donda Academy, A K-12 Prep School

The K-12 school will focus on “equipping students with an education that will last in the ever-changing world” and plans to find the “intersection between faith and the innovation of the future,” per the academy’s official website, donda.world.

“‘Donda Academy’ prepares students to become the next generation of leaders, thinkers and innovators by providing them with a world-class education that includes a rigorous core curriculum, and an emphasis on sustainability, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving,” the admissions portion of the website reads.

News of West opening up Donda Academy comes two weeks after the rapper was “eyeing” a plot of land located between Moorpark and Simi Valley in Los Angeles, according to the Simi Valley Acorn. The outlet reported that the school would feature “classrooms, labs, offices, a kitchen, restrooms, storage, a basketball court and an open field” for its students to use.

The rapper has dabbled in opening up educational institutions in the past — in October 2020, West posted footage from his Yeezy Christian Academy to his Twitter account, which featured its attendees sharing inspirational messages in a video titled, “Dear Future, I Still Believe in You.”

It is currently unclear when classes start for Donda Academy, though Yahoo Sports reports the school is discussing a possible game against Sierra Canyon School — where Lebron James’ son, Bronny James, attends — at the Staples Center for February 2022.
