EARLY LEARNING INITIATIVE
Public Prep launched a partnership with the Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP), an evidence-based early literacy, parenting, and school readiness model. Through this unprecedented partnership, future Boys Prep and Girls Prep students who now are toddlers as young as eighteen months old receive a two-year literacy head start before they receive automatic lottery preference as a sibling into PrePrep I, II, or III. This program provides a bridge to PreKindergarten, improving readiness for both scholars and families. We believe this early start, combined with a high-quality PreK experience, will help create an incredibly strong foundation for families and their children as they enter Kindergarten.
College Completion Initiative
We are determined to graduate 8th grade scholars who thrive in “right-fit,” college-prep public, private, or parochial high schools, and ultimately earn a degree, on-time, from a four-year college or university. Towards this end, Public Prep has secured exclusive partnerships with colleges and universities to guarantee multi-day or multi-week, on-campus experiences for Girls Prep Middle School or alumnae scholars to take summer classes, live in dorms and experience college life.
We strive to nurture the whole scholar - mind and body. Scholars participate in "specials" that expand their creativity and promote a healthy lifestyle. These classes, and our external partnerships with organizations such as Chess in the Schools, National Dance Institute, and The Public Theater, help scholars develop skills such as self-expression, perseverance, and improving based on feedback early on in life that will help carry them through college and ultimately lead fulfilling lives.
