JOHNATHAN PANNELL, SENIOR “I love National Prep because it is a place where education is the FIRST priority and no matter the circumstance failure isn't an option. For four years, I have had the opportunity to receive a private school education in a
public school setting that has enabled me to lead social changes in my
community as well as become the well-grounded and mature young adult I am today; I thank NCP for that.”
DAVON EVANS, ALUMNI “Right now, I am in the process of transferring from Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio to Virginia State University, located in Petersburg, Virginia so I can pursue my studies in Computer Engineering. Yes, I will have to start over as a freshman again, due to the curriculum, but it is worth it when you are striving to accomplish your dreams. After I graduate from VSU, I want to become a CCNA- Certified Network Engineer for Cisco or any other big technology company.”
SHARAYAH J. WILSON, ALUMNA "I am currently an undergraduate student at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and my major is nursing. National Prep allowed me to build a network with people who can help me be successful. No matter where I am in life, there will be people I met at National Prep that I can call for help or call to say thank you."
