Aspire California College Preparatory Academy Reviews
It was targeted to give my child a helping hand into college . Cal Prep required students to take college courses while in high school(For Free). Now my son is an advanced junior (and honor student ). He was taught college readiness at Cal Prep. We do not have much money due to my husband's disability, but we were able to get a full ride scholarship with Principal Cabra and College Advisor, Ms Gerbre's help. Thank goodness for Cal Prep!
The time at Aspire California College Preparatory Academy a.k.a Cal Prep, was amazing. Going to Cal Prep was awesome because I was able to learn in a safe, fun enviroment. The teachers were very nice, and understanding. The material the teachers taught was very interesting, and when it got tough, the teachers were ALWAYS there to help. Although Cal Prep did not have many sports to offer, it had some good ones like soccer and basketball for both girls and boys.
The school isn't very big, so the teachers know every student by name. The academics are of high standard and the teachers and staff always push students to do their best. The school's focus is to ensure that everyone has college accessible to them by providing a well rounded education with sports available. The students and teachers aren't just that, they are a family. They are a well oiled machine thriving for success.
