Why Prep?

 
Three 6th Grade Girls
 
 
We don't expect your child to fit a mold.
 
Your child is enthusiastic and loves learning. You want your son’s full potential realized. You want your daughter to be surrounded by caring and compassionate teachers who know how to approach her unique learning style. You want your son to be in a smaller community with a serious commitment to education. We hear you. We are here for you. We know that the journey is just as important as the destination. We will help your child to enjoy learning, develop strong critical-thinking skills, and be challenged and supported throughout his or her time here. We fuel success.
 

Switching to Prep in seventh grade was one of the best decisions I have made. I remember my first day: I felt as if I belonged. Everyone welcomed me with open arms, and I knew I was in the right place. I always felt prepared for what was ahead of me because of the time and dedication of all of my teachers. My study skills, grit, and ability to present and write well would not be what they are without these individuals. - Gwendolyn ’19

 
We have passionate teachers and plenty of people on our campus who care about our students, from the front desk receptionists to the security guards to the admission staff and everyone in between. But what makes us who we are is your intelligent, talented, curious, loving, creative, individual child. That’s who inspires us, motivates us, humbles us, makes us love coming to work every day. We build our community around your child. What interests him, what inspires her, what he needs. We don’t expect your child to fit a mold. We mold our community and our curriculum around her.
