We Value Honor, Leadership, & Scholarship

National Prep was founded on the basis to provide students with a great high school education. It is our goal to teach students to be life-long learners and give them the ability to succeed in college and become productive young adults within their communities. National Collegiate Prep serves all DC residents.

It is our goal to provide a well-rounded educational experience for our students to include a rigorous college prep curriculum to prepare our students for college and give them an international experience including opportunities to travel abroad and learn about other cultures and customs while attending National Collegiate Prep.

At National Prep We Believe:

  • Every student can achieve and meet high academic standards regardless of their learning ability, style or socio-economic status
  • Parental and community involvement is an essential ingredient for student achievement
  • Small schools promote improved student outcomes
  • Instructional methods must support the varied learning styles of students
