The Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy was founded by Andre Agassi and opened in 2001 third, fourth and fifth grade students. The college prep school has expanded each year and is now a K-12 school with the inaugural class graduating in June 2009. Agassi Prep was conceived from Andre's belief that nothing has a greater impact on children's lives than the education they receive. "Early on, we concluded that the best way to change a child's life was through education," said Andre Agassi, a native of Las Vegas dedicated to improving the lives of underserved youth in his hometown and across the U.S.
