UNIVERSITY OF R.A.P.

We combine delivering food donations, executive panel sessions, consultations with a former staff member from the Obama Administration, directly to the studies they learn. We engage them with Hip-Hop, they become engaged as auto-didactic scholars and business owners. We require parents to attend one session to be active in their child's academics. Scholars are immersed in professional environments where they apply district standards and skills in the real world. We connect the love between our community and our students, so they work together to build our society.

Each session, student success is measured by:

  • Evidence-Based Project Learning
  • Student Surveys
  • Parent Surveys
  • Teacher & Admin Surveys

TESTIMONIALS

“What I like about the program, is that, before I wanted to become a professional rapper, and I would always just think I don’t need to do anything, I can just do this and do that and then I become a rapper. But no, I need to write down my stuff, figure out what I am going to do, download apps, go and make beats, put raps in your notes, and make a song. This has also helped me with Math, because before I was terrible at Math, but now I am getting a little better. I also like how we went to the studio, and we got to know what to do to make the beat, and how to make the song sound right. I would also like to thank Mr. Lloyd for letting me in this club, because if it wasn’t for him, I never would have made it.”
