We strive to equip each of our scholars with the habits and skills to excel in college and life.
The mission and strategies that define Pride College Prep derive from an unwavering focus on our mission to prepare students to enter and succeed in college. Fundamentally, we will act upon the belief that all students can learn at high levels and deserve the opportunity to receive a college preparatory public education. We believe in establishing clear and measurable high expectations for academic performance for every teacher and student, and we believe that it is ultimately the responsibility of adults in our school to do whatever it takes to ensure students meet the high academic and social standards we set for them. We know that the students we serve need more to accomplish this mission; but not more of the same. We deliver more of what successful schools serving similar student populations have done. Pride College Prep’s education philosophy is derived from the most successful charter schools in the nation - schools that consistently prepare their students to succeed in college and beyond. Specifically, KIPP, Achievement First, and Uncommon Schools have been major influences on the philosophy. All of these schools almost exclusively serve at-risk students and share the same demographics as the students who will be attending Type 5 charter schools.Pride College Prep is not conducting an education experiment: it is implementing proven strategies that have consistently been proven effective in raising the achievement levels of at-risk students.
