Frequently Asked Questions

Q
What separates Park Prep Academy from the other local preschools?
A

Unlike most preschools, Park Prep Academy operates as a multi-age classroom where students are grouped primarily by ability rather than simply by age.  The exceptional and highly trained Staff:Student ratio of 1:5 allows the Park Prep Academy head teachers to work one-on-one with each student every day at his/her individual level.  The Park Prep Academy classroom is a community of learners where students are encouraged to embrace their similarities and navigate their differences with respect and appreciation. 

Q
What are the ages that PPA begins admitting children?
A

PPA admits students between the ages of two and five years.  All students must be at least two years of age to begin school.  Applications may be submitted before the child turns two years.  After turning five years old, students graduate from Park Prep Academy and head into Kindergarten.

Q
When should I submit an application for my child?
A

TODAY!  PPA has a rolling admission and is currently enrolling students for both the current and upcoming school year.  Applications are considered on a first come, first serve basis.  Applications submitted and received before February 1st are given priority consideration for September enrollment.  Park Prep Academy does have a rolling admission which means that an application may be submitted at any time.
