Though Kanye West’s late mom Donda was a professor, we weren’t essentially betting on the rapper to go down the training path himself. However alas, the mogul has emerged with Donda Academy, his new Christan prep college in Simi Valley, California — though, maybe unsurprisingly, the jury’s nonetheless out on its legitimacy.
“Utilizing an ethic of integrity and care, Donda Academy prepares college students to develop into the following technology of leaders, thinkers and innovators by offering them with a world-class training that features a rigorous core curriculum, and an emphasis on sustainability, creativity, vital considering and downside fixing,” the varsity’s web site says.
As for that core curriculum, Donda Academy goals to “promote ideation, prototyping, and real-world implementation,” whereas religion may even be inspired by every day group prayer and, after all, Sunday Service. The web site additionally provides basketball and “enrichment courses” like music, visible artwork, and… parkour. Donda Academy serves pre-kindergarden by twelfth grade, with a whopping 10:1 student-teacher ratio.
Nevertheless, shops like Rolling Stone and even native information publications just like the Simi Valley Acorn have had a tough time getting in contact with any workers of Donda Academy. RS studies that the purported head of the varsity, Brianne Campbell, has by no means held a proper educating place.
Much more eyebrow-raising are the 2 sources who informed RS that households of Donda Academy college students are required to signal nondisclosure agreements. A advisor to the varsity claims solely dad and mom signal what they describe as an “casual settlement.”
Ye’s shut collaborator Malik Yusef can vouch, although: “I need to be emphatic that there’s by no means been a time that Kanye West didn’t need to do that,” he informed RS. “I feel individuals don’t perceive the gravity of that. This man all the time wished to create a college in his mama’s title.… Have a look at what we’re doing with the choir and the style at school — I don’t assume there’s a enterprise capitalist or anyone that’s had a imaginative and prescient this clear on what training can appear to be for you.”
Ye reportedly plans to open extra Donda Academy establishments nationwide. Its flagship campus is at present accepting purposes for the 2023-2024, in case you’d wish to get in on what seems to be a rocky trial run.
On the plus aspect, nonetheless, Ye might need extra time to give attention to his training ventures now that he’s shuttered his Yeezy collaboration with Hole.
