Prep offers incredible opportunities to its students. World travel to France, Ghana, and Japan. Summer jobs at places like Chase, ESPN, New York Hospital, the NY Mets, Time Warner, and the White House. Field trips to Broadway shows, Yankee games, and museums. College trips and SAT preparation.

Independent schools today are eager to attract students from ALL different backgrounds. As a matter of fact, 25% of New York independent school students are now African-American, Latino, or Asian-American and that number is growing every year. The independent schools that Prep’s 800 students attend offer our students $20 million in scholarships every year! This all sounds too good to be true. How do I join?

First, you have to be admitted to Prep, which is very competitive. Second, if you are accepted we want to make sure you are among the most successful students in your independent school right from the beginning. So, we will prepare you with advanced classes that take place over two summers and the school year in-between those summers. During those 14 months, you’ll study very hard, but you will earn a lifetime of incredible opportunities and make the best friends you have ever had.
