Combine High School and College.
Your student can apply their high school studies to college and earn up to 18 college credits without changing curriculum.
Create a plan
With the help of an Academic Advisor, your student will create a customized education plan to help them transition seamlessly from high school to college.
Earn college credit
Using a variety of resources, like online classes and competency-based exams, your student will earn up to 18 transferable college credits.
Save time in college
Your student will complete an entire semester of college while building advanced study skills that will expedite their future college studies as well.
How does it work?
Your student’s Academic Advisor will help them plan out their high school and college journeys, making sure their coursework lines up with their goals. At the end of your family’s time with Prep, your student’s Academic Advisor will help you understand how your college credits can apply towards high school.
Your student’s Academic Life Coach will call them twice a month to keep them accountable for their progress. Through collaborative, student-centric conversations that include both their education and life outside of school, your student will be challenged to view their academic journey as one part of a bigger picture of life preparation.
Not only is the Comparative Worldviews course worth 3 college credits, but it’s also a foundational block that will help your student understand what they believe and why they believe it. Over six weeks, instructor John Stonestreet will help your student understand the world’s three major worldviews, what they teach, and help them develop a firm understanding of their own faith.
Exams and Online Courses
You shouldn’t have to re-arrange your student’s high school studies to attend extra classes. Your student can earn college credit by replacing a high-school subject with a self-paced college course or by using their current curriculum to help study for a college-level exam. The flexibility of these formats allows your student to study for college topics that line up with their current curriculum, seamlessly combining high school and college credits.
I want to be a doctor, and there is a lot of school involved in going into a medical profession. [Prep] seemed like a good option because it would give me dual credits now so I can get a head start on where I want to go. After a little over a month of studying and working with Prep, I took my first test. I passed. All that hard work paid off. I was 15-years old and had 6 college credits. My confidence level was high and I was ready to take the next test.
