Principal's Message

Mr. Jesse De La Huerta, Principal

Welcome to Dobie College Prep Academy's website.

Welcome Dobie Roadrunners and Families,


     Welcome to a new and exciting school year at Dobie College Prep Academy! I hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. Your first official School day is Monday August 21st. We will be opening the doors by the cafeteria by 7:45am and classes start at 8:25am. We have added a list of school supplies and dress code for the 2017-2018 school year under the announcements tab. We are thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of learning and growing. This year I am excited, ready and committed to continue to lead our school community. 

   All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff has already been planning and preparing for your children's return. Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. And, our much-appreciated PTA is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. 

     Personally, I am grateful and elated to continue this journey with you as your Principal. Over the past year, I have had a chance to meet many of you and your children, and look forward to continuing building a strong relationship with all of you in the upcoming year. 

     I would also like to personally invite you to attend our Back-to-School Night on Tuesday September 5th from 6-8pm. This will be a great time to strengthen our Dobie community, meet teachers and other families, and learn about the upcoming school year. We will begin the evening in the cafeteria for a brief welcome and opportunity to meet our special programs and from there we will have the opportunity to visit with your child's teachers. Our school goal is to see 80% of our families at this event. I hope to see each of you September 5th. 


As always, please feel free to reach out with questions or concerns.
