Da Vinci Communications is funded in part by a prestigious Next Generation Learning Challenges grant funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundations, and by Northrop Grumman, Chevron, and two private foundations. For the 2016-17 school year, Da Vinci Communications is serving approximately 275 9th through 12th grade students, and will graduate its first class of seniors in 2017. Da Vinci Communications will enroll an additional 9th grade class for the 2017-18 school year and will continue to grow each year until it reaches full enrollment of approximately 515 students.

Da Vinci Communications offers:

A real-world, project-based curriculum with an increased focus on computer-based instruction
• Early College/Dual Enrollment classes that count for both high school and college credit through Antioch University LA, UCLA Extension, El Camino College, Cal State Dominguez Hills, and West L.A. College
Communications Career Pathways in Computer Programming (robotics, web design, app development), Strategic Communications, Journalism, and Music & Media
• Exhibition Nights
• Work Experience Program
• Student-Led Conferences
• Industry & Education Partnerships
• Small School Culture

Da Vinci Communications has a deep and enduring partnership with 72andSunny, an award-winning advertising agency based in Silicon Beach. In one recent project, 10th grade students worked alongside agency brand strategists to conduct research, create story boards, strategy maps, and a final deliverable to raise awareness of the national TRUTH campaign to end teenage smoking.

Da Vinci Communications students are making their mark beyond the classroom as well. Students were invited to present at the iNACOL 2014 Symposium, the industry's leading event for K-12 online, blended and personalized learning. Additionally, 10th grade students were invited to present their conflict minerals project at Northrop Grumman's Global Supply Chain Preventative and Corrective Action Board Meeting, in support of responsible sourcing of minerals.
