About Public Prep's College Completion Initiative:

Fewer than 1 in 5 NYC public high school graduates complete college, and Public Prep is committed to addressing the factors that prevent college completion for our scholars. We provide an exceptional PreK-8th grade educational foundation for our boys and girls and place them in top independent, parochial, and public high schools. In addition, Public Prep schools address other barriers to college completion early on – including family and scholar commitment, financial preparation, and non-cognitive skills such as emotional intelligence.

Public Prep scholars step on college campuses beginning in Kindergarten through annual field trips. In addition, dozens of accomplished professional men and women flood our classrooms to share stories of perseverance and success during our annual College and Career Week in May. College partnerships include Cornell University, Stephens College, and more, enabling students to take advantage of state-of-the art science labs and college-level professors and course work.

Our unique partnership with NY’s 529 College Savings Program educates our students’ families about the importance of college savings. In addition, Public Prep provides a $50 matching incentive for families who open up accounts for their sons and daughters.
