*Community Prep will serve students in grades 4-8 as of September 2017.

Community Preparatory School gives motivated students in grades 3*-8 the opportunity to reach for their dreams, regardless of family income. Community Prep offers all the benefits of an independent school - small classes, challenging academics, and a positive, nurturing environment - combined with the cultural and economic diversity of a public school.

Community Preparatory School’s Campus Expansion Highlights
Community Partnerships 
to Create a Recreational Field!

We’ve REACHed another milestone in our decades-long dream to secure the future of Community Preparatory School, while expanding educational opportunities for the children who need it most. The renovation of our building, construction of a new addition, and creation of a recreational field will not only serve Community Prep but also SouthSide Elementary Charter School and the neighborhood at large. Our REACH! Campaign is well under way, but we have a long way to go to reach our $15M goal.

On June 10th we were joined by Mayor Jorge Elorza, City Council President Luis Aponte, and Councilwoman Mary Kary Harris, along with Community Prep students, parents, alumni, and friends to break ground for our expanded campus. 

We would love to talk with you about REACH!
