Discover Prep

When students and parents visit Flintridge Prep for the first time, they say they feel something a little like magic. It could be the characteristic warmth of our students, the collaborative, nurturing environment fostered by our faculty, or the lifelong friendships students make with one another. At Prep, people feel like they belong.  

That's because the magic of Prep comes from the relationships created here in our dynamic classrooms, labs, stages, studios, and fields, whether on campus or virtual. The Prep community learns and grows together.   

We can’t wait for you to experience that magic firsthand. Discover who you can be at Prep.

Being a Student

Rooted in liberal arts and interdisciplinary exploration, Prep’s curriculum allows students to experiment with ideas, challenge perspectives, and become global citizens. Our students and teachers encourage each other to grow intellectually, think deeply, and act compassionately.
