About Scholarship Prep

Scholarship Prep is a free, public charter school aimed at establishing a sustainable education program where scholarship is the standard, diversity is treasured, and parents are partners in student achievement.  

Utilizing a university-inspired, college scholarship concept, our students will understand that by achieving academic, athletic, and/or arts excellence, a broader array of possibilities and options exist for future endeavors in higher education.  Ultimately, our goal is that EVERY student will one day receive a college scholarship, earn a degree, and give back to their community.

Our founders, former California Senator Gloria Romero and charter school developer Jason Watts, saw an opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of students and families in underserved communities by laying the foundation for students to succeed in college and career. 

Their goal was to create not only a fun and engaging atmosphere for students and staff, but also a collegiate-inspired environment that will motivate all students to attend school and excel. Each classroom is not be identified by number.  Rather, students are in UCLA, Harvard, Stanford, etc, further establishing a "college feel".

Scholarship Prep’s instructional program is based on the tenets of academic rigor, student engagement, innovation, and creativity.  As a Project-Based Learning (PBL) modeled school, Scholarship Prep teachers mix learning technologies and interactions resulting in a socially supportive, constructive learning experience.
