Kanye West is trying to open his first school in California Kanye West has had a vision for quite some time of opening up many schools. He is on the verge of bringing ‘Donda Academy’ to life in California. Donda Academy Inc. has reportedly requested a change of occupancy permit from a previous preparatory school that closed in 2010. Kanye wants to make the private school tuition-free so it can be available to all students. Donda Academy’s educational consultant said, “Donda Academy prepares students to become the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and innovators, by providing them with a world-class education.” Would you send your child to Donda Academy if they opened up in a city near you?
