  • College Preparatory
  • Independent School


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 welcoming verdant campus in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood.

In and out of the classroom, students explore and extend their abilities, test their ideas, question assumptions, grapple with moral issues, and acquire the skills to be positive and productive citizens. Led by exceptional and caring teachers, mentors, and coaches, our students are encouraged to grow into their best selves.
