Community Prep School Building

About Community Prep School

On her second day at Prep, Sarah observed to a teacher, “This…is unique. I think I’m going to like it.” We’re happy to say that Sarah is not alone. Students have described CPS in a variety of ways such as,

The school that won’t give up.
The school that doesn’t feel like a school.
The school of third chances.
The school where you find your way.
The school where you feel at home.

Community Prep is a school for young people, ages 14-23, who, for whatever reasons, have not yet built a sustainable path in school. Our aim is to make school work. To do this, we combine a curriculum that is relevant with a process that is empowering. But our secret is our people. Our staff is a group of approachable, bright, enganging, problem-solvers who are undeterred in their committment to see our students thrive for the rest of their lives.

The best way to learn about CPS is to experience it. We are open from 8:30-5:00 every school day. Stop in and meet us. No appointment is required. We will enjoy getting to know you.

Our Mission

To respect each individual, cultivate authentic passions and activate purposeful plans for life.
