As you can see, the 2014-2015 school year was packed with lots of learning, tons of fun, and many unforgettable experiences. To conclude this amazing school year, the students spent the week reflecting upon some of their favorite moments and also preparing a warm send-off for their Kindergarten-bound friends.  The “undergraduates” participated in their end of the school year “Moving Up” certificate ceremony.  On Wednesday, the graduates spent their Last Day of Preschool preparing for the 9th Annual  Park Prep Academy Graduation Ceremony – Class of 2015.  Before the ceremony began the graduates gathered together for their Graduate Pizza Party Lunch!  Here are some of the highlights from the graduation ceremony.




The Park Prep Academy Class of 2015 is such a wonderful bunch!  We met them as new-to-school 2.5 year olds and now send them off to Kindergarten two and half years later as preschool professionals ready for the challenges that Kindergarten has in store! The teachers are all confident that the students will do absolutely wonderfully in Kindergarten. We look forward to hearing about their successes and achievements throughout elementary school and beyond. The graduates and their families alike have all left their mark on Park Prep Academy and will be greatly missed.

Everyone at Park Prep Academy would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the great families that were a part of PPA this year.  Without your continued support and enthusiasm, this school year would not have been nearly as wonderful as it was.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Remember, this is not a goodbye – it is a “See you soon!” :)

Have a sunny and safe summer!  See you in September!



The Park Prep Academy Summer Camp begins on Monday, July 6th!
