Join the College Prep community!
Founded in 1960, The College Preparatory School is an independent coeducational secondary school created for intellectual risk-takers who want to pursue a purposeful education with kindred peers. We prepare students for productive, ethical lives in college and beyond by fostering a stimulating education within an atmosphere of consideration, trust, and mutual responsibility. Today, 360 students and 80 faculty and staff aspire to live by the motto our founder, Mary Harley Jenks, selected from Vergil: Mens Conscia Recti—a mind aware of what is right.

Witty, warm, passionate, and knowledgeable, the adult community at College Prep has been one of our strengths since our founding.
