Ι LIFE PREP ACADEMY

Life Prep exists to give families an affordable college prep education that inspires students to reach their full potential in spirit, mind, and body.

Our rich tradition of excellence and genuine love and concern for students began in 1999 when the school was planted as a kindergarten-through-12th grade school that is fully accredited by the state of Kansas Board of Education.

Life Prep’s goal of giving students a college prep education is backed by hundreds of alumni’s acceptance into top 100 US schools. There are no limits placed on our graduates with regards to admission into colleges or universities.

Life Prep Academy seeks to work together with parents to “train up a student in the way he should go…” keeping with each student’s individual gifts and talents.

Students are placed at their ability level — not grade level — giving them the opportunity to move ahead in subjects where they excel and providing additional instruction in areas where they need.

Our small class sizes provide a more interconnected setting and a better student-to-teacher ratio, both of which foster an exceptional learning environment for our students.

Ι LIFE PREP ACADEMY ASIA

Life Prep Academy Asia is the official representative for Life Prep Academy in Asia.

We provide in-depth instructions for admission procedures, scholarship applications, pre-departure orientations, pre-screening of students’ eligibilities and international student care services.
