  • The school aims to develop mentally, physically, and character. At Poly Prep, we believe in working toward the development of the whole person—health, mind, and character.
  • We also believe that such an education can only be obtained within a diverse learning community.
  • To this end, the school has dedicated itself to creating a genuinely heterogeneous student body, one that bridges differences and provides a vibrant and inclusive educational environment.
  • When students from different backgrounds work, learn, and succeed together, individual learning is enhanced, as are the prospects for the well-being of the immediate community, and for our society as a whole.
  • At Poly Prep, faculty, students, staff, parents, and alumni work together as a community of learners.
  • For us, this community is defined largely by our unique status as a country day school in an urban setting.
  • Students live and work together from early morning until after the school day ends.
  • As educators, we consider it a duty and a privilege to bring together students from across the city and from every background, and to help them become responsible, thoughtful, active citizens.
  • We believe that this kind of learning prepares them for success as participants in our democratic society and as members of the world community.
