COVID-19 Response and Resources

Prep for Prep is closely monitoring COVID-19 developments and recommendations from local, state, and national officials as they unfold. We are taking every precaution to help our community remain safe and healthy while continuing programs and support services for our students with as little disruption as possible. Most importantly, we are conveying to our students that Prep is here for them. 

Our staff are proactively reaching out individually to students and families to support their evolving needs, from technology and internet connectivity at home to storing belongings and moving back from campus closures. Most of Prep's programs are moving to online platforms, including Preparatory Component classes, individual student meetings, and select leadership development activities. 

If you are a current student or family member with any concerns, please reach out to your normal Prep for Prep contact. Email is our primary mode for communicating about programming; please check your email regularly. All our staff continue to work during this time and can be reached via email or phone. Our general number is (212) 579-1390.
