Arete Preparatory Academy Reviews

My son began in 9th. As a student at Arete, he's engaged, happy, learning, exploring. His curiosity kicked up a notch. He happily dives in to studies at home (read: homework). He discusses what he's learning (a miracle!). The teachers amaze with enthusiasm, knowledge, ability to engage and meet each students personally. They teach their passions. They're trusted and the results are impressive! I'm so grateful my child can have this experience.

Arete uses Socratic seminar format. Students question, observe, discuss, use information in real-world ways, each accepted and encouraged for unique ideas. They discover and develop their voices and talents. They complete college requirements but go much further to discover whom they are as individuals! Students can jump ahead. My kid rediscovered his love of science. He can go deeper at Arete. Same with history.

The community is wonderful (read: great parent community!) Arete continues to amaze in giving my son a superior education!

My daughter came in as a Junior from a prestigious girls school. She complained that she didn't fit their mold and wasn't treated well by many of her peers. She felt the homework was excessive and found herself cramming for tests. Now at Arete, she still works really hard but sees the homework as more fair (occasionally the teachers have realized they have assigned too much and dialed it back) and more geared toward productively gaining a deeper understanding of the material. She loves her classes and her teachers and the seminar style of teaching. Honestly, when people ask her about her switch to Arete, she lights up when describing what she likes about it! Arete truly is ahead of the curve when it comes to teaching style and deeper dive learning. No school is perfect and social opportunities and things like performance theater are Limited. But if you have an academic student like mine, they will be happy and get a great education!
This is such a hidden gem for high quality individualized education. The seminar-style classroom with low teacher-student ratio provides the opportunity to deepen each student’s learning, encourage critical thinking and nurture one’s passion. My son loves going to school everyday learning from passionate teachers and peers. The study body although small is quite diverse with various interests and backgrounds. What I’m most impressed by is the focus on individual growth, making sure each student is challenged in pursuit of their passion. So glad that we found this school.
