What Makes Wonderful College Prep Academy Different?


Better Grades.
Better Grads.

A longer school day and extended school year give our students an edge. And, hey, it really works. In one school year, our students average two years of growth in both reading and math. Our STEM curriculum focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to prepare students for 21st-century jobs.

Every child is an artist.

Every student takes art classes or learns to play a musical instrument. We believe that an art-filled education helps students develop self-discipline, reasoning and imagination. And we limit class size to an average of 25 students or fewer per teacher.  Students will love finding new forms of expression and skills in a way that makes every day fun.


Connect and

After school, friends can stay active in CIF sports teams: basketball, soccer, volleyball, baseball, softball, cross-country and track.
