The Prep Journey

Prep for Prep is the nation’s foremost program for academically gifted African American, Latino, and Asian American students. We place our students in New York’s independent day and boarding schools, which provide scholarships that fully meet every family’s financial need. We also offer our students life-changing opportunities, great activities, and support from middle school all the way through college. Prep charges no tuition for its services.

Once accepted into the program, Prep for Prep students must complete a rigorous 14-month course of study to prepare them for independent school success. Once placed, Prep offers support services and leadership development opportunities that foster our students’ success at whatever they choose to pursue. Prep students pursue their dreams with determination, purpose, and a clear sense of social responsibility.
