Preparing high school students for collegiate success.


The College Prep Program serves middle school and high school students focusing on homework, Christian education and one-on-one tutoring. Additionally, the high school students receive support with college entrance exam preparation (PSAT, SAT, ACT), college tours and career counseling.

Students meet daily after school where they also have time enrichment activities such as debate team, Spanish club, STEM club and recreational basketball.

High school upperclassmen are exposed to college life through campus visits and tours. Career assessment tools are used to provide students and parents with vital information to make well-informed decisions.
