Community Preparatory School gives motivated students in grades 3-8 the opportunity to reach for their dreams, regardless of family income. Community Prep offers all the benefits of an independent school - small classes, challenging academics, and a positive, nurturing environment - combined with the cultural and economic diversity of a public school.


Our groundbreaking will be ... well ... groundbreaking!

We’ve REACHed another milestone in our decades-long dream to secure the future of Community Preparatory School
while expanding educational opportunities for the children who need it most.

Celebrate with us as we break ground for the expansion of our campus as part of our $15M REACH! Campaign.
The renovation of our building, construction of a new addition, and creation of a recreational field will not only serve
Community Prep but also SouthSide Elementary Charter School and the neighborhood at large.

We would love to talk with you about REACH!
