  • MCP Middle and High School (Monterey Coast Prep) provides a highly engaging education combining academics, social opportunities, and emotional support for students who learn differently-ensuring that our students can enter college and adult life with confidence.
  • We create a personal learning plan that takes into account students' current abilities, future plans, and personal strengths.
  • We assess academic, social and emotional ability throughout their learning that is adapted to how they best show what they know and can do.
  • The MCP personal learning plan builds on student strengths towards mastery of middle and high school content.
  • For students with special gifts, we're able to accelerate and expand learning opportunities for advanced college prep, including UC and AP classes.
