The Prep Way

Rocky Mount Prep is a tuition-free public charter school founded in 1997 by local business leaders to provide a rigorous, “world-class” education to prepare scholars from all backgrounds for success in college, career, and life. From its inception, the school’s founders have embraced the principles that all children can learn, and that every scholar should be challenged to reach his or her maximum potential.

Today, Rocky Mount Prep educates 1,300 scholars from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Parents from more than eight school districts have made the choice for us to educate their scholar.

Rocky Mount Prep seeks to:

Demonstrate the heights of academic achievement that economically disadvantaged scholars can routinely attain when the advantages of charter school governance are coupled with ambitious new academic standards

Provide a challenging core curriculum for all scholars, based on practices proven through the best available evidence of effectiveness in attaining superior academic outcomes.

Provide each scholar with an accelerated academic achievement to close learning gaps and advance while giving them the motivation and support to excel in school, college and life.
