Seth Andrew founded Democracy Prep Public Schools in 2005 to ensure that every single student would work hard, go to college, and change the world, and the organization now operates the #1 middle school, #1 charter school, and the #1 Charter Management Organization in the entire City of New York. Democracy Prep is a network of no-excuses schools in Harlem that accepts students by random lottery and prepares them to be responsible citizen-scholars ready for success in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship.
