Where Students Discover Their Greatness

Alcott Gold Leaf

At Alcott College Prep, we don't help our students become good learners. We help them see the greatness that's already there.

“A lot of the time, kids don’t realize their potential. But we already see it in them as they’re walking in. We see what they’re capable of—and what they can be capable of.”

What is Alcott Like?

Alcott is an educationally, socially, and emotionally rich community who value innovation, engagement, and lifelong learning. Because of that, Alcott students are accountable and take responsibility for their own education.

Building close relationships with their teachers, students are equipped with skills to meet their full potential and with what they need to succeed to make an impact on their society.

“The teachers here value student-teacher relationships and focus on bettering every single individual. I truly believe that not one student can leave Alcott without saying they were impacted by at least one adult in the building.”

Alcott is a place where we all value the students’ voices. It’s a place where students know they are heard—and where you’ll find juniors and seniors reach out to freshmen to help them feel welcomed and accepted.

“Students collaborate so well at Alcott. There’s a beautiful fabric of complexity and diversity that’s here. They’re thoughtful, caring, and community-oriented. If you’re looking for stronger relationships and connections, Alcott is the school for you.”

-Elizabeth Gonzalez, Alcott Teacher

Andrew_Brake

The cliquey behavior that often happens in high school just doesn’t exist at Alcott. Students truly do help one another fit in. From freshman to senior, there are very few divisions—we’re all “Alcott” here.
