About Capital Preparatory Schools

Capital Preparatory Schools is a charter school management organization operating a network of educational communities. Our mission is to build a path where there was none. From its inception, the Capital Prep community—our students, parents, faculty, and staff— have come together to create a compelling and meaningful educational experience. The Capital Preparatory Schools, located in Bridgeport, Connecticut and New York, NY provides students in grades 6–12 with a year-round, college-preparatory education that encourages students to become scholars and agents of change.

Capital Preparatory Schools believes that all children, when given the right conditions and environment, will succeed and excel in their academic and social-emotional growth. This is achieved by blending elements of academic models that successfully support students from historically disadvantaged populations, with innovative approaches that get 100% of our graduates accepted to four-year colleges.

Focusing on the key attributes of leaders, our learner expectations are designed to develop students who are:

  • collaborators;

  • information processors;

  • problem solvers;

  • knowledgeable people;

  • responsible and empathetic citizens.

With the support of the Capital Prep team of skilled and compassionate educators, students realize their academic abilities, advocate for social justice and fulfill their civic responsibilities. As leaders of social justice, we expect our students to use their education to improve the lives of others.
