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 (S.W.O.R.D). Jump Camp Orientation for students in prekindergarten to 5th grade will be held August 1 from 1 – 3 p.m. Jump Camp Orientation for 6th through 8th grades will be August 1 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. During the start of each orientation, parents/guardians and students are asked to join the administration team in the cafeteria for the welcome address. Students and parents/guardians will then have an opportunity to meet with the teacher and visit various stations.
Parents/ guardians are asked to provide their child with a bookbag. All other school supplies will be provided using our federal funds project. It is recommended that your child have a water bottle.
We do not have a mandatory uniform, but students are asked to adhere to the Sumter School District Dress Code.
School will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. and dismiss at 2:20 p.m. We look forward to an exciting year of learning and growth. The first day of school for grades 1-8 is August 3. Students in prekindergarten and kindergarten will start on August 10.
