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

Engaging, Interactive Remote Learning
We know that remote learning takes a major commitment from families and scholars, and we’re here to make it as easy as possible while continuing to provide an excellent education.
We provide all of the technology, wifi accessibility, and tech-support needed to facilitate remote learning and we also offer grab-and-go meal kits each week to all scholars.
Citizens Academy Schools offer a variety of programs to students in our higher math and literacy blocks to extend their creative and critical thinking skills. Such programs have included:
- C.S.I. – Students solve a mystery by conducting a series of forensic tests. Students learn about genetics, the judicial system, and a variety of math and science skills.
We have after school tutoring for students looking for extra support with reading and math, as well as Homework Club for those who need a quiet place to finish homework. Additionally, we have an after school partnership with the Boys & Girls Club on Broadway, and provide transportation there after school every day.
Thanks to all the parents and family members that make up our PAC. All families welcome.

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.
