Intrepid College Prep Schools
Intrepid College Prep is a growing network of public “no-excuses” college preparatory charter schools founded to address two interrelated achievement gaps – the academic achievement gap and intergenerational wealth gaps in the communities we serve.
Our flagship middle school, Opportunity Academy, educates 420 students in grades 5-8. Our high school, Independence Academy, launches in August 2017. Intrepid College Prep was recently named a 2015 Tennessee Reward School for Progress and we have received local recognition from Metro Nashville Public Schools as an Excelling School in every year we’ve had the honor and responsibility to educate students.
We make three commitments to every student – admission to selective colleges, preparedness to engage the world as a financially literate young professional, and the cultivation of positive leadership skills.
Our Six Core Tenets
• All scholars can achieve at high levels with high-quality instruction.
• We believe scholars must be financially literate to achieve life success.
• We invest in exceptional teachers to achieve exceptional results.
• We provide a rigorous college preparatory curriculum.
• We measure results, not intentions.
• We foster a culture of success.
