Our College Preparatory is designed for students who are entering in 6th - 8th grades, committed to working hard, and are focused on developing college readiness skills towards a successful experience at our Early College level.  The College Preparatory prepares students for a successful experience by fostering self-advocacy and 21st century fluencies through competency based learning.  We also focus on educating students as individuals to ensure that each student is able to meet their full potential!

College Prep’s faculty is committed to providing students with an innovative approach to education using individualized curriculum, engaging instruction, and technology based strategies.  Students enrolled in the College Prep will each have an academic coach, who will guide them towards college readiness, within their Focus Group courses.  Providing students with a safe environment to develop a growth mindset is a priority for our students.
