Academy Prep is designed to promote an appreciation for hard work, growth in personal responsibility, and academic and social skills. To accomplish these guiding principles, our programs are aimed at educating "the whole child." Our curriculum is based upon Sunshine State standards and geared toward bringing students to grade level and beyond-particularly in mathematics and language arts.
Upon completing the Academy Prep program, most of our students matriculate into college preparatory high schools.
