As a parent, what are you looking for in a school?
A small community that is committed to elevating your child? A commitment to top notch educational practices? A school that will teach relevant career skills? A community that is welcoming of all students? A safe place for your child to thrive? A place that addresses the whole student?
If your answers to these questions are all YES, then Richmond Prep might be the right place for your child. Every parent wants the best education for their child. At Richmond Prep we understand that desire and have created a school that is unlike any other on Staten Island. Our 6-12 program will provide all students with a rigorous college preparatory education. We will do so with small class sizes and a dedicated staff that will get to know your child. We believe in an inclusive educational environment and are welcoming of all students, including those that are living on the autism spectrum.
Our program will provide your child with all of the classic classes (such as English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies) as well as some classes that are unique to Richmond Prep. Our program provides a Computer Science career path for all students that begins in sixth grade and will run through high school graduation. This career path is an intensive path that will provides students with the skills needed to succeed in the field of Computer Science; including several professional certifications. All students will participate in a Wellness class that teaches them the skills required to thrive in all aspects of life from social skills, to executive functioning skills, to acquiring a better understanding of themselves. Every student will have a yearly Art class and learn the power of expression through the many disciplines of art. Finally instead a classic physical education class, our students will take a Movement class that explores how the human body moves and functions. This class will enable students to stay fit using methods such as dance, yoga, and martial arts.
Richmond Prep is anything but your typical school. We aim to provide an experience that will set your child up for a lifetime of success while providing them with the necessary skills to do so. We encourage you to consider Richmond Prep as an option for your child’s education and encourage you to navigate this website to learn more and reach out to us with any questions that you may have.
