Elementary Schools

A college-ready education for all students Pre-K through 12th grade

For more than 20 years, YES Prep has served students in grades 6-12 and increased the number of students from underserved communities who graduate from college prepared to lead. Recognized by U.S. News & World Report, The Washington Post and others as having some of the best schools in the nation, YES Prep has graduates earning their college degrees at four times the rate of their peers nationally. 

In August 2020, YES Prep will begin opening elementary schools to provide the same quality education to families with younger children. The first two YES Prep elementary schools—feeding into YES Prep Southeast and YES Prep North Central—will serve students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade, with additional grade levels being added the following years, including Pre-K up to grade 5.
