The philosophy of The Prep Academy is based upon the acknowledgement that in order for students to accept and take educational risks, they must be empowered. Giving students the tools and the taste of success builds self-esteem, confidence and the desire to strive for excellence.
We teach that while no one may achieve perfection, excellence and defining one's personal best is always attainable. With low student-faculty ratios, an emphasis can be put on project based and student-centered learning. Teachers are viewed as mentors and work closely with students to achieve their academic goals. Nurturing the growth and development of each student remains a primary goal of education at “The Prep,” with the school emphasizes on collaborative nature of learning.
A wide array of athletic, cultural, and community service activities enhance the overall school experience while offering varied opportunities for leadership skills and individual achievement.
Today, “The Prep” offers its students a rigorous classical, liberal arts curriculum. Core courses provide a solid foundation in critical thinking, and electives offer multiple opportunities for students to explore individual interests. In a diverse community of learners and leaders, students are challenged to grow as individuals and to develop the confidence to make a difference.
