Program Overview


The mission of W.E.B. Dubois Charter School is to provide an education to young parenting families by establishing adequate resources for children to succeed. Our focus on core academics, vocational training, technology, leadership and parenting skills ensures the success of young families in becoming educated, self-sufficient, and economically independent.


The W.E.B. Dubois Charter School is designed to target young parenting individuals who have dropped out of school and will benefit from an interactive, family-like learning atmosphere to reclaim their education toward a high school diploma. Daycare and early start education will be provided for children of students in an effort to educate the entire family. As a collaborative effort, the school will provide onsite health care services, mental health and prenatal counseling. Our school will provide parenting education, vocational training, and the development of a higher education plan to enhance each youth's stability and help them become assets in their communities.

Program Sponsor

W.E.B. Dubois Charter School is sponsored by the West Fresno School District.

Agape' Corporation

Agape, Incorporated, a non-profit, public benefit corporation, is responsible for the complete operation and liability of the W.E.B. Dubois Charter School.

The organization's mission is to provide adequate resources within the community for youth and families to succeed by developing, expanding, and reaching out to those most in need.

Agape's founders intend to fulfill that commitment by designing and implementing needed resources and services that reduce and/or eliminate obstacles preventing progress.

Agape' serves as an innovator for providing services to youth and families, which increase their likelihood of becoming resilient, productive, prosperous, self-reliant and successful members of their community. Success will be reached through the following organizational principles:

A. Fiscally Sound - Each school and program must produce adequeate funds for growth and expansion, and at all times be fiscally solvent.

B. Accountability - Performance driven and measurable outcomes to provide high quality programs will be our continued focus.

C. Community Outreach - Keeping parents and community members informed and involved through various announcements and trainings.

In addition, Agape' is determined to offer services that will break the cycle of poverty, dependence and pessimism toward the future. We strive to achieve this by providing youth and families with proactive opportunities to overcome two of the most significant impediments to success:

1. Leaving school without completing a High School Diploma.

2. Prematurely becoming a parent without adequate services or an education
