The choice our family made to send our child to Tampa Prep has been one of the best decisions we have made in education. The ability for our child to grow, enjoy a diversified student body, be encouraged by faculty and students to try new things and excel beyond what could be possible at other schools is priceless!

Tampa Prep lives its mission where "rigorous grounding in skills and knowledge is just the beginning". I graduated from Tampa Prep 25 years ago and was only there for only three years. Yet, it remains a cornerstone for who I am and that time and investment pay dividends in my life today. I fell in love with learning at Tampa Prep, which served me well as I accepted challenges in college and my career. Tampa Prep was a place where future college basketball stars rooted on thespians and vice versa. Where art, sports, and academics all felt important. Where getting your homework done and participating in classroom discussions was not only the norm, but was expected by fellow students. Where locks on lockers were rare. Where fights and bullying just didn't happen. Where the concept of polarity didn't exist. Where confidence, self worth, inclusion, and respect were cultivated.
Tampa Prep. Is an excellent college preparatory school. The school caters to students who would like to be challenged. Many AP courses are available. The staff and teachers are available daily both before and after school for both students and parents. There is an entire floor devoted to the arts, music and drama. The STEM program is superior in providing opportunities for innovation.
