The Prep for Prep Undergraduate Affairs team introduced the Near-Peer Mentor Program in the 2021-2022 academic year at Amherst, Cornell, and Yale. The program pairs undergraduate students (mentees), usually in their freshman or sophomore year, with upperclassmen (mentors).
For nearly 45 years, Prep for Prep has proven that access to a quality education can change the trajectory of one’s life. More than 600 alumni who have benefited from the Prep experience are shaping the next generation of learners through their work at primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, and education-related nonprofit organizations. Meet three Prep alumni — José De Jesús (IX), Xiomara Hall (P9 I), and Ramón Javier (XI) — who were appointed to senior leadership positions at independent schools during the 2021-2022 fiscal year and learn how Prep has influenced additional alumni leaders in education.
The Covid-19 pandemic served as a catalyst for leveraging technology to enhance Prep for Prep’s programming. Each student received a Prep for Prep email address and Zoom became the virtual meeting platform of choice. Computer science also has been incorporated into the Preparatory Component curriculum, an addition long championed by Dale Allsopp (VII), Ads Responsibility Officer at Google.
Prep for Prep is pleased to welcome 15 new members to its Board of Trustees and Associates Council. Please join us in welcoming our new Board of Trustees and Associates Council members, including eight alumni, who joined us this fall. We are grateful for their commitment.
Part of a long-standing Prep for Prep College Guidance tradition, this summer’s Panel Series offered an opportunity for rising high school seniors and their families to connect directly with admissions officers.
