Donda Academy is a private Catholic school in California founded by Kanye West. And there are many secrets surrounding the school.
"Doves" is Professor West's nickname for his students. Rolling Stone explains that Kanye West has opened his own private Catholic school, Donda Academy, named after his late mother, teacher Donda West. The school's mission? "To be a reflection of God's glory in the world," according to the school's website. Located in Simi Valley, California, USA, Donda Academy aims to "prepare its students to become a future generation of leaders" by advocating an "ethic of integrity and wellness."
But despite some media hype, what actually happens at the school remains a mystery. Parents are required to sign a confidentiality clause before enrolling their children. Very little information is circulated, so we will have to make do with the haphazard explanations on the website. The students' daily schedule includes: "worship time, art language, maths and science classes, lunch and recess time, and enrichment classes in languages, visual arts, film and parkour.
What is the price of all this knowledge? Well, we don't know. No information on the school's website, just a vague "tuition-based school", but not a single detail on the fees. Very proud of his project, Kanye West, back on Instagram, shared photos of some students, all dressed head to toe in Yeezy x Gap. Now deleted, his post showed some of the students with the caption: 'Doves are going back to school, thank God'.
Even stranger, the school is still not officially accredited and is still looking for teachers, even though the school year has already started. Without accreditation of the school, the diplomas obtained by the students will not be worth much and will not be taken into account by the admission committees of the universities. So maybe it's time to do something about it…
