Village Prep Willard

Our Village Prep Willard Campus offers high-performing, college preparatory, tuition-free public charter schools open to all students and families.  Our Willard Campus opened in 2016 and is led by our dedicated staff and leadership, committed to serving the children and families of the Cudell and neighboring communities.

A Community of Scholars

Claps, cheers, and chants energize our highly focused classrooms. Motivating school-wide routines create a culture where scholars thrive. Welcome to E Prep, a non-profit, public charter school campus serving  middle school scholars from throughout Cleveland.

Our Mission

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 within 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

Our vision is that children in every neighborhood in Cleveland have access to at least one outstanding preparatory school.

Our Approach

Claps, cheers, and chants energize our highly focused classrooms. Motivating school-wide routines create a culture where scholars thrive.

About Jazmine Williams

Native Chicagoan, now proud Clevelander, Jasmine Williams joined the Breakthrough family as the founding principal of E Prep Willard. Previously, Jasmine taught in Chicago with the Academy of Urban School Leadership (AUSL) network as a 4th, 5th, and 6th grade reading teacher while also serving her school as the ELA instructional leader for 4th - 8th grade. She is passionate about providing high-quality instruction to underserved students and creating awareness of the social injustices within the education system. Principal Foster is committed to empowering her students and staff to becoming the change they wish to see in others and the world.

Among several areas of expertise, Agnes has been recognized specifically for her work bringing together teams to drive transformational school-level change. She is most proud of the work her team did in 2015, moving Indianapolis Public School 103, later renamed Phalen Leadership Academy @ 103 from a state grade of F to an A in two years. Since then, Phalen Leadership has maintained its A rating three years in a row.
