Tel: (626)798-7431
Grades: PK-6 | 58 students
  • Harambee Prep School provides a rigorous academic elementary education in a Christian setting to vulnerable children in Northwest Pasadena, California.
  • We believe that every child can learn.
  • We prepare our children to obtain post-secondary education and return to be the leaders of our community in the future.
  • Our motto is: Enter to Learn - Exit to Serve.
  • Since 1995, we have provided an excellent educational opportunity to children that live in our community.
  • We found that many local children lacked the support or foundation that they needed to advance through the typical public school curriculum.
  • They were falling behind early in their school career and would never be able to catch up to attend a college or university.
