Life PrepAratory Academy can be a great place to study! As with most things in life, you get more when you put more of yourself into it. I have seen so many students come here, apply themselves and go on to thrive in colleges and careers. They return to say they attribute their success to the foundation that was established here at Life Prep. Our students also praise the opportunity they have to experience the unique diversity we have at the school. Where else can a teenager come in contact with students from over 20 different countries?!
Additionally, teachers truly care about the students and try their best to prepare each person for whatever he or she chooses to do after leaving here.
The administration and staff are continually looking for ways to improve the culture and the educational quality of the school.
This is an excellent educational opportunity for students seeking a quality education!

Our family selected LPA because we were seeking a richer, fuller education experience. We've been extremely pleased with the academics, as well as extracurricular activities; sports, clubs, etc, that our kids have been able to participate in. We are confident our son and daughter will be well equipped for adulthood, thanks to the teachers/staff at school. Without hesitation I recommend Life Prep Academy! Quality education is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children!
Life Prep is a fantastic school! It is small with about 300 students K-12. This makes the classes small and personal and you don't feel like a just another face in the crowd. It is also an incredibly diverse in both the student body and staff. At Life Prep you get a diverse and cultured education.
