“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela


Intrepid College Prep maintains a strong commitment to sustainability. Our schools will operate on the public dollar at full enrollment in grades 5-12. In the near term, we need your support to supplement public funding.

In the start-up phase of a school, operations support is critical. Given many one-time expenses and the size of our classes in a slow growth model, the per-pupil cost of running a school is higher in the early years. In order to provide our prepsters with a consistently stellar educational program from the day the school opens, we hire Blue Chip Teachers and Leaders and invest in our entire program as if it were operating at full capacity.

In order to achieve our twin goals of closing the academic achievement gap and intergenerational wealth gap in this community, we need your help.
