Admission Criteria and Selection Process

Community Prep serves students who are performing at or above grade level. We determine where applicants fall within this range through a review of their grades, standardized test scores, teacher recommendation and an interview/visit at Community Prep School. To be considered as candidates for admission, students must demonstrate strong, grade-level academic ability, a good work ethic, a history of school-appropriate behavior, and a desire to attend the School. To be successful at Community Prep, students must be willing to work hard and be committed to our program. Teachers provide the support necessary for students to become confident, independent learners. Additionally, we expect parents to be supportive of and involved in their child's education. It is the student, however, who is responsible for putting forth the effort to meet the school's academic expectations.

In addition to the academic demands it places on students, Community Prep expects students and parents to understand and support the school's mission to serve a diverse population. Our students come from a variety of racial, ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. The administration, teachers, students and parents are always working to maintain an environment that is welcoming for all students regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, creed, or sexual orientation. Students must be willing to work with others from different backgrounds and must be respectful of all members of our community.
