The goal of the Palm Beach Prep academic program is to inspire a love of learning while developing skills that are essential to success in college, the workforce, and life. Our faculty uses a holistic and experiential approach to develop our students into lifelong learners who will know how to navigate an ever changing global society. Developing these skills and pushing our students to be the best they can be is a collaborative process. Collaboration between enthusiastic faculty and students is essential to successful learning. Our small class sizes provide students the opportunity to connect with our faculty and actively participate in the learning process, empowering students to set themselves up for future success.
A Palm Beach Prep education is dependent on each student’s presence and good citizenship in class. These are the fundamental bedrock elements of our academic program. While at times participation may entail simply listening attentively, more often participation calls for thoughtful class preparation and active involvement in class discussion or presentations. In such circumstances, teachers are best able to guide students in developing their strengths and strengthening their weaknesses. Students also share responsibility for monitoring their own progress and are expected to seek extra help whenever they find themselves confused or in need of further support. In an effort to achieve these goals, the School provides its students with small classes; a talented, dedicated, and accessible faculty; and the rich and varied curriculum described in the pages that follow.
