New leadership beginning three years ago/cool changes/lots of opportunities. Great school/outstanding teachers. Offers strong college prep/liberal arts curriculum and four new academic institutes, including Leadership programs. MDP does not just offer model UN participation...it is part of the UN. Offers traditional and "outside the box" learning opportunities to prepare kids for college. When kids graduate, they get accepted into top colleges/universities. Challenging/exceptional...so glad I chose MDP!

Mater Dei Prep is an academically rigorous, college prep high school. It caters to all academic abilities. Its small size and family atmosphere (where students make lifelong friends) sets it apart from other schools in the area. It offers wonderful and unique programs that prepare high school students for college: strong liberal arts program, medical and emergency institute/anatomy and physiology, global leaders institute, performing arts institute and information technology institute. These institutes combined with religious education, college/AP course offerings, and prestigious Capstone Academy opportunities prepare students to learn, prepare students to lead, and prepare students for life. Team sports opportunities and numerous clubs are plentiful! I am thrilled with Mater Dei Prep and all it has to offer for my daughter. I highly recommend Mater Dei Prep to any parent or student!!
Mater Dei Prep caters to every academic ability, from special needs to AP level. Need some extra attention? We have a room full of tutors available all day everyday. Our math and history programs are very, very established. Recently, we have implemented an Institutions program, which will allow students to pursue their career interests on a special tract designed about their future interests. EMT certification and nursing classes will be made available to those who desire them. Our sports programs are especially notable, especially the track, football, and newly implemented lacrosse teams. Additionally, numerous academic honors societies available for membership: the Spanish, Rho Khappa, French, and National Honor Societies.
