About AC Prep Lower

African-Centered Preparatory Academy Lower Campus provides a unique college preparatory curriculum that is consistent with KCPS but strives to exceed its mandates due to our school’s higher level of expectation and challenge. AC Prep stays in-tune with the distinctive foundation of cultural awareness that is important to the success of students in urban areas. We focus 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 students knows their heritage, they are more likely to take pride in their performance and demonstrate improved behavior. Every day, our goal is to provide a culture where students can develop a life-long love of learning.
