From Lake Tahoe Preparatory School

Lake Tahoe Prep is a coeducational boarding school for students in grades 9-12 located in Olympic Valley, California, and for a limited time we are offering tuition for $48,000. With a student body of 70 and student to teacher ratio of 7:1, we lead a program built upon personalized attention. Our students benefit from our robust curriculum approved by the University of California, small class size, individualized learning, and access to yearlong outdoor sports. Our community offers access to global perspectives, as our student body represents 13 countries.

In 2020, we marked the 42-year anniversary of our school with a name change to Lake Tahoe Preparatory School.

I invite each of you to schedule a visit to meet our students and learn about their experiences. While touring our newly renovated buildings, you will quickly see we offer the best of a big school, with all the benefits of a small one.

Sincerely,

William "Bill" Grant

Head of School
