The Preparatory Component prepares students to excel academically and socially at the nation's leading independent schools. This rigorous 14-month course of study spans two intensive summer sessions, as well as classes during the intervening school year on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The Prep for Prep Preparatory Component prepares sixth- and seventh-graders to enter New York City independent day schools in seventh or eighth grade. The PREP 9 Preparatory Component prepares eighth-graders to enter boarding school in the Northeast in ninth grade. To familiarize students with boarding school life, they spend two weeks of both summer sessions on a boarding school campus.
