Zion Preparatory Academy

  • Zion Prep espouses a simple philosophy: every child is somebody to be loved, to be taught, and to be valued as a unique individual.
  • Zion Prep's approach includes a preschool program for one-year olds through pre-kindergartners, an academic program for children in kindergarten through eighth grade, and before and after school day care beginning at 6 AM and ending at 6 PM.
