     African-Centered College Prep focuses on college readiness as well as teaching the rich history of African and African-American people and culture to give students the opportunity to drive their own success. Research shows that when a student knows their heritage, they are more likely to take pride in their performance and demonstrate improved behavior. AC Prep teaches there’s more to black history than just slavery, it provides a glimpse into life before slavery.

    Along with a rigorous college prep academic curriculum, AC Prep teaches principals of Ma’at and the Nguzo Saba focusing on self-esteem, empowerment, responsible citizenship, along with the classical views of traditional African society.
