Why Choose Richmond Preparatory Charter School

Students learn from each other as much as they learn from their teachers. Our classes are welcoming of all students, including those with IEPs. Our small class sizes and highly trained staff ensure that all students can learn and grow in the same environment. Our teaching philosophy is that students need to be hands on with their work and learn through experimentation and experiences.

Fully Inclusive Learning

We embrace diversity through integrating students with differing learning needs in our classrooms. Richmond Preparatory Charter School classes are comprised of 60% general education students and 40% special education students, each working alongside teachers at their own pace. Our program and facilities are designed for those living with autism.

Individualized Attention

We value the power of small class sizes in increasing student engagement, improving academic performance, and strengthening relationships between students and teachers.

Comp-Sci Program

Starting in the sixth grade, students are introduced to the basics of programming and hardware, and courses increase in complexity through the eighth grade. Students finish middle school with their first certification. In high school, students choose a Programming or Hardware track and graduate with college credits and additional certifications.

Student Wellness

We recognize the important role mental, emotional, and social wellness plays in fulfilling personal potential, even beyond the classroom. Our robust Wellness program guides students in managing stress, overcoming challenges and practicing conflict-resolution in their everyday lives.
