Crestwood Preparatory College is a non-denominational, non-semestered university preparatory school. Students are encouraged to achieve their highest potential by balancing academic, co-curricular and social pursuits within a structured, disciplined and nurturing environment. Crestwood offers a full range of courses at the academic and university preparatory levels. The staff and administration are committed to academic excellence, while fostering integrity, creativity and responsibility to self and community. Organizational and study skills, good work habits and consistent effort are emphasized in all courses. Our program, however, does not end in the classroom. The gym, field, music/art/drama rooms, computer labs and yearbook office, to name a few, are the co-curricular classrooms of young minds eager to take on new challenges and celebrate fresh prospects. Students are consistently provided with many opportunities to create and consolidate. All these factors and the positive personal relationships developed at the school all serve to make high school at Crestwood the memorable and productive experience it was meant to be.

Our Take: Crestwood Preparatory College
There is a rich program of extra-curriculars, though the focus is on academics, including the development of sound study and test-taking skills. The Maximizing Academic Performance Program (MAPP) begins in the lower school, and augments a traditional approach to education, one that is didactic and where assessment is objective. The ideal students are those who have their sights set clearly on success within a university career, are motivated toward that goal, and are seeking to augment or improve their academic prospects.
