Evening With the Stars 


What Is It?

The Community College Preparatory Academy (CC Prep) hosts an annual fundraiser and awareness event called the “Evening With the Stars.” We spotlight the work of our school and adult students who are using educational and training programs to move out from poverty and become tax-paying residents in the District’s knowledge-based economy. CC Prep is transforming lives one student at a time, based on the most current research from adult college students and career employees. We have identified students who embody the traits that yield successful outcomes and captured their stories. We invite you to join us in celebrating their success. This 90-minute event will feature a local chef and brief presentations.

How will Funds be used?

It costs $100 a month to take the bus to school and for many of the 1000 plus students we serve annually, the biggest barrier to their attendance is transportation. CC Prep provides an emergency transportation fund for students in need. We also provide incentives for perfect attendance because they cannot learn if they are not in school.  Since we began this program, attendance has increased by more than 24%.

Community College Preparatory Academy's (CC Prep) homecoming is CC Prep's largest event of the year. It is an opportunity for students, staff, alumni and community members to engage with the school in a non-academic setting. The day consists of performances, music, activities and special awards ceremonies to connect people with organizations helping to transform the East of the River community. During the ceremony, CC Prep recognized 119 of its top performers and program completers for their outstanding work throughout the year.
The 2018-2019 Homecoming attracted more than 300 students, community members, guests and vendors. CC Prep was honored to welcome Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White, East of the River Services Executive Director Timothy White and D. L Humphrey from the office of Councilmember Vincent Gray. Attendees enjoyed food,  a Dj, games and raffle giveaways. Thanks to the music and moves of our special performers-the MPD Side by Side Band, everyone was on their feet. CC Prep also welcomed 12 vendors from DC Water to the Far South East Family Strengthening Collaborative. The event embodied the spirit of community and togetherness that the East of the River is known for.
