At College Prep we value the unique time that is high school. As our students grow, they develop their abilities, test ideas, question assumptions, grapple with ethical issues, make long-lasting friends, and cultivate their character. Our blend of high academic standards, personal responsibility, and kindness creates a unique learning community. Guided by exceptional and caring teachers, mentors, and coaches, our students engage with each other and the increasingly interconnected world.
College Prep is a home for ideas, discovery, and engagement—intellectual pursuits that our students treasure. Our academic offerings are buoyed by our warm culture and inspiring location adjacent to the city, and nestled in a verdant valley campus.
The College Preparatory School is a private coeducational high school, located in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland, for students who want to pursue a serious, purposeful education with others who feel the same way.
For more than 40 years Intraterm at College Prep has integrated work and play. Students participate in experiential learning offerings that encourage intellectual risk-taking and adventure. This year, they climbed, cooked, kayaked, played croquet, and more!
