Statesmen College Preparatory Academy for Boys

Ward 7

Friday, December 7th, 2018


Statesmen College Preparatory Academy for Boys, which opened in August with an inaugural class of 40 students, is a single-gender school that aims to provide students—particularly black and brown boys—with an educational environment where they are supported, challenged, and loved. Designed specifically for the way boys learn and experience the world, the model aims to encompass the four values of: Relationships ("I am my brother’s keeper"), Rigor ("I am excellence"), Relevance ("I matter and this matters"), and Resilience ("I never quit."). Co-located for one year at Rocketship’s Legacy campus in Ward 7, Statesmen currently serves 4th grade and will grow a grade each year through 8th grade. The school was named to honor the life and character of Frederick Douglass.
