From Tampa Preparatory School

At Tampa Prep, we want students to think, create, be yourself, aspire to excellence, go beyond . . . and to start right here on our downtown campus as a member of the only private independent school in Tampa Bay specifically serving grades 6-12.

Our students are promised a dynamic, progressive approach to education; a school that is carefully crafted to elevate their learning experience and challenge them in ways that more traditional environments cannot. We’re not afraid to shake things up if it means a better, smarter journey, and we’re proud to call ourselves Florida’s Most Innovative School.

Tampa Prep proudly provides its students with a foundation or preparation for life in all ways–from how we treat others, to how we learn, to how we as individuals can make an impact.

We believe in preparation for life, with a higher purpose than self.
