Prep for Prep develops leaders from under-represented communities through access to a superior education and life-changing opportunities. Since 1978, Prep has identified New York City’s most able students of color through a highly selective admissions process and, following 14 months of rigorous academic preparation, placed them at leading independent schools in the City and boarding schools throughout the Northeast. Once placed, Prep offers its students a sense of community, peer support, critical post-placement services, and a host of leadership development opportunities through college graduation. The results are compelling: more Prep students have graduated from Harvard than any other institution, and over 90% of Prep’s nearly 3000 college graduates have earned degrees from the most competitive colleges in the country; nearly 40% have graduated from Ivy League schools. They are emerging leaders in every field from business and law, to education and the arts, to science and medicine. Prep shares its best practices with like-minded organizations through an initiative called Smart Connections. Through Smart Connections, Prep has impacted over 250,000 students around the world, including in Argentina, India, and South Africa.

Prep’s $12 million annual operating budget is raised each year from private sources, including from its very generous 60-member Board of Trustees. Prep has 60 full-time employees as well as part-time school year and full-time summer faculty who teach our Preparatory Component classes. Prep is based on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with brownstone offices on West 71st Street and West 91st Street. Prep also makes extensive use of rental space at Trinity School and other schools in the vicinity.
