High Structure. High Support. College for All.
We are proud of our scholars, families, teachers, staff, and community supporters who have worked together to make our Cliffs Campus an amazing place to learn and excel. Our scholars work hard every day in and out of the classroom. On-site science exploration days, off-site field trips to the museums, and much more are all part of what it means to be a scholar at Village Prep Cliffs Campus.
Our campus, located on E36th between St.Clair and Superior Ave., offers high-performing, college preparatory, tuition-free public charter schools open to all students and families.
Our mission is to seek to provide a high quality, academically rigorous education for the college bound scholar. We empower our scholars to think critically, assume social responsibility, and serve as advocates for themselves and the community. We achieve these goals with in a highly focused, structured and safe environment. We, as a community of educators, families and scholars work relentlessly to ensure that every child is prepared to succeed in a competitive world.
Our vision is that children in every neighborhood in Cleveland have access to at least one outstanding preparatory school.
Claps, cheers, and chants energize our highly focused classrooms. Motivating school-wide routines create a culture where scholars thrive.
Culture at our schools is foundational. A high structure, high support culture sets high expectations for all scholars while continuously giving differentiated support for an individual child to help them be successful. This takes a relentless and diversified approach from the adults that surround the student to prepare them for success in life.
High Structure High Support ultimately means doing whatever it takes to ensure scholar’s success without lowering expectations.
