About Rve Prep:

Rve Prep is based upon the fundamental belief that with high-quality instruction, which requires rigorous curriculum, individualized supports, and character development, every student will be challenged and will excel academically. We believe that an excellent education that sets ambitious academic and life goals, and which is backwards planned from those goals, starting in kindergarten and planned vertically across all grades, is directly correlated to a positive life trajectory, including access to educational and professional opportunities - specifically attending and graduating from a competitive high school, attending and graduating from a four-year college, and achieving ambitious career goals.
