We are excited to start a new year of learning at R.E. Davis College Preparatory Academy, where we Seek excellence, Work Hard, Observe rules and procedures, Respect ourselves and others and Do the right thing.  Orientation for students in Grades Prekindergarten through fifth will be held Friday, August 13 from 9–10 a.m.  Students in Grades sixth–eighth will have orientation on August 13 at 10:15-11:15 a.m. During the start of each orientation, parents/guardians and students are asked to join the administration team in the gym for the welcome address and review of policies and procedures for the 2021-2022 school year. Students and parents/guardians will then have an opportunity to report to the child’s assigned classroom to meet with the teacher. 


School will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. and dismiss at 2:20 p.m. Student uniforms are mandatory Monday–Thursday. Fridays, students should adhere to the Sumter School District board policy on dress code. Students in Grades Prekindergarten–eighth should wear pants, skirts, or shorts that are navy blue or khaki. Students in Grades Prekindergarten–fifth should wear collared shirts, blouses, or sweaters that are yellow or navy. Students in Grades sixth–eighth should wear collared shirts, blouses, or sweaters that are red or light blue.

We look forward to an exciting year of learning and growth. The first day of school for grades Kindergarten through eighth is August 17.  Students in Prekindergarten will start on August 23.
