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.

Programs & Support

Innovative Academic Program

Our E Prep middle schools are very intentional about setting a culture marked by high expectations and no excuses. Every student can achieve and every teacher and administrator models relentlessness in this pursuit.

Our Village Prep elementary schools are a very focused environment for our young scholars. Teachers are passionate and committed, and every minute is used to the fullest. Village Prep’s two teacher model divides the class into small groups of 5-10 scholars to provide targeted, differentiated instruction. We use adaptive computer based programming to target skills in an engaging and fun way. A balanced curriculum that features Guided Reading, Reading Comprehension, Phonics, Writing, Math Fluency and Math Problem Solving as well as enrichment classes of Physical Education, Art, and Technology.
