Prepa Tec Los Angeles is a vibrant and diverse community whose purpose is to promote personal and intellectual growth. We provide challenging, engaging programs in a nurturing learning environment, devoting care and attention to every student. Embracing high standards of character, commitment, and achievement, Prepa Tec Los Angeles encourages students to think critically and creatively and to act ethically.
We believe that our curriculum should help students develop intellectual abilities and interests, social awareness, personal competencies, and a code of ethics. Hence, students explore courses in a variety of areas. The sequence of course requirements provides a balance between gaining a solid knowledge and learning foundation, exploring a wide range of inter-connected subjects, and obtaining needed skills for success in high school, college, and careers. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a wide range of opportunities and experiences, expanding their neurological capacity for life.
In the Middle School, we emphasize deeper understanding and connections, as well as learning how to learn. As students begin to take more responsibility for their own learning, the faculty members remain supportive and nurture personal growth. Teachers work to build explicit links between subjects, with a theme-based approach, in order to deepen students’ understanding of the world in which they live and to enable students to ask higher-level thinking questions. Our hope is to engender students’ sense of wonder and possibility and develop a belief in every student that they are a powerful learner.
Prepa Tec Los Angeles provides experiences that allow students to grow morally as well. We believe that we should prepare our students to be confident, independent, and responsible citizens. It is also our aim to help students learn to lead their day-to-day lives with compassion and kindness and to serve the needs of others. Finally, it is the fervent hope of Prepa Tec Los Angeles that students will have gained not only a personal vision, but also will take joy in the discovery and fulfillment of that vision. We work to endow them with the moral fiber to work through difficulty toward a true understanding of the way in which individual goals can harmonize with the greater good of the world. Prepa Tec Los Angeles’s programs are committed to this development.
