The John W. Lavelle Preparatory Charter School provides a rigorous college preparatory education that equips and empowers students to go to college and succeed in life. Lavelle Prep is a college prep program that in the 2010/2011 school year will serve grades 6 and 7. Lavelle Prep will add a grade each school year until we fill grades 6-12. Lavelle Prep welcomes all students, including those living with emotional challenges. Full integration in all classes and activities enables each student to develop the academic skills, emotional fluency and confidence required to be successful students today and thoughtful, open-minded leaders tomorrow.
Lavelle Prep has high expectations and unique benefits for all of its students. This includes an outstanding college prep program, small class sizes, superior educational technology and instruction, a visual and performing arts curriculum, a Wellness curriculum that addresses students' emotional and social needs, and an environment that breaks down barriers and promotes understanding, acceptance and growth. Lavelle Prep fully integrates students living with emotional challenges through dually-certified teachers, supported by school assistants who follow students through all of their classes and work with students individually as necessary.
