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 us, virtually, and find out what it’s like to be a Prep student. Meet with us online. Explore our website. Visit us on Instagram and Facebook.

Where Prep Takes You

The Senior Experience

The final year at Prep is the culmination of students’ academic and personal journeys. In their capstone projects, AP and Honors classes, and final presentations, seniors display their intellectual curiosity and love of learning.

As peer counselors, club presidents, sports captains, and lead actors, our senior leaders set the tone for the entire community.

College Counseling

Our goal is to help students discover the college that fits them academically, socially, and emotionally – a place where they can thrive.

We lead students through a rigorous 15-month process, working closely with each student to examine their progress in high school, think about where they want to go, and celebrate everything in between.
