"Thanks for looking in to Community Prep School. We provide pathways to success for students who have typically struggled in their prior educational experiences. Our “formula” is pretty simple: A highly talented and dedicated staff and governing board who value students where they are at, invest in their lives, and provide them with ongoing support and accountability within the context of a close-knit community. It is no easy task to undo habits and repercussions from past choices. You need a strong community alongside to get and stay on the right track. We are that community for nearly two hundred students." - Marty Schneider, Director
