The four Prep Schools (“The Preps”) are defined by the highly-structured school culture found in many of the nation’s top-performing urban schools. The elementary schools feature intensive reading and math instruction, technology that differentiates every child’s learning experience and personal attention for all students with two teachers in every classroom. The middle schools feature four hours of math and language arts instruction per day and a unique entrepreneurship curriculum. Students thrive in the highly disciplined culture that is centered around a rigorous academic curriculum and embraces the entrepreneurial values of courage, self-discipline, respect, responsibility, and perseverance.
