Prep Academy

Prep Academy is a 15-month academic enrichment program designed to prepare students for middle school admission to rigorous independent schools. Taught by independent school faculty, students are challenged academically, enriched culturally and become a part of a supportive community. A number of REACH Prep alumni and college students work as advisors to the students, where they meet individually and in groups to provide motivation and support, and serve as role models. Prep Academy courses include Latin, ISEE Test Prep, English, Mathematics, Writing and Technology. A mindfulness curriculum is also incorporated into the Prep Academy program to encourage wellness and concentration. Prep Academy classes meet for six weeks during the summer after 4th grade, Saturdays during 5th grade and for six weeks the summer after 5th grade.
