Welcome to Collegiate Preparatory Elementary. We help scholars achieve the college dream through Advancement Via Individual Determination. Also, we focus on the social and emotional aspects to help students build the capacity to overcome any obstacle they may encounter in the collegiate pathway and life. Scholars at our school learn collaboratively with cutting-edge instructional practices and the integration of technology. We view the importance of a well-rounded learner. Our scholars participate in general music instruction and after-school clubs to expand learning beyond just core instructions, while having focused attention on rigorous learning and achieving a free associate’s degree with additional hours toward college graduation before graduating from high school. Our leaning environment is unique and is powerful to see. If you would like a tour to help you decide if Collegiate Preparatory is the place for your scholar, please contact Sonja White at (972) 293-4502. We would love to show you our learning institution.
***Tours are conducted most Fridays during the school year between 9:00-10:00 AM***
