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 over 1,000 scholars from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Parents from more than eight school districts have made the choice for us to educate their scholar.

The mission of Rocky Mount Prep is to educate, equip and empower each scholar to excel academically by providing equitable learning opportunities and collaborating with families and communities.

The vision of Rocky Mount Prep is that each scholar will graduate with experiences and exposure to equip them to embrace and engage future opportunities.
