A Prep Education

Student-centered, active inquiry characterizes our curriculum, which covers a breadth and depth of study across six academic departments, the arts, athletics and community service.  The required core subjects develop the disciplines and skills central to a liberal education.  Elective courses stimulate students to follow their passions.

Students take charge of their own learning in discussion-based classrooms.  Small classes (average class size is thirteen) engender a mentorship approach to learning, and students learn to communicate confidently and comfortably with faculty.  Each department has designed its curriculum to engage, excite and educate.

Our greatest strength is our inspiring and dedicated faculty.  We invite you to watch this short video below to hear their perspective on teaching at Prep.
