Capital Preparatory Schools is a charter school management organization that operates a network of educational communities. From its inception, the Capital Prep community—our students, parents, faculty and staff—has come together to create a compelling and meaningful educational experience. The Capital Preparatory Schools, located in Bridgeport, CT 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, a group 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.
