My son was struggling in the large public schools (socially and academically) and after his sophomore year I was uncertain if he would make it through high school. Then we found Boulder Prep and not only did he graduate, he has been accepted to the University of Colorado- Denver and has plans for his life and a career. Boulder Prep staff is loving and dedicated to guiding their students to success and fosters individuality and self development. I am so grateful to the staff and teachers at Boulder Prep!

I love attending Boulder Prep. Over my two years here, I've been able to grow as a student due to the school's climate and support from staff. Everyone is so welcoming, and it's a great learning environment. All of the staff are amazing and understanding. The free lunch program is also amazing. I think our Life Skills days have been extremely useful to helping me develop other areas of my life, learn new skills, and approach situations differently. Could not recommend Prep more!
I can safely say that Boulder Prep changed my life completely for the better. I was considering dropping out from school after I had such a horrible experience in public school, but in Boulder Prep, I found community, support, individualized learning, fun classes, and so many other benefits. Everything is no fee and no cost. The staff continue to challenge me on the things I love learning about the most, as well as supporting me through more difficult classes. Our therapy dog Story is amazing to have to go hang out with on a tough day or when needing a break. Lunch is amazing, and I always have options as a vegetarian. The staff are like family, they're so down to earth and respectful to us as students. It isn't a perfect school by all means, but it's an incredible opportunity for at risk students.
