Admissions at Tampa Prep

Welcome to Tampa Preparatory School, home of the Terrapins! Tampa's premier 6-12, non-sectarian college preparatory school has been educating and preparing young men and women to become future business, cultural and civic leaders since 1974. Today approximately 650 students are enrolled, representing all the cultural and socioeconomic diversity that gives Tampa its character. Our rich academic tradition, along with a commitment to arts and athletics and a focus on producing well-rounded citizens, has made Tampa Prep one of the best schools in Tampa.

Spend a day on campus and you’ll see what we mean. Our ambitious students initiate not only special interest and community service clubs, but they also spearhead school-wide projects such as the Honor Code Book, which all students who attend Prep sign. In this unified environment, young people feel at home among friendly peers and a caring faculty.

As you consider your options for Middle School and Upper School, explore our website to see our unique balance of Academics, Arts and Athletics. View Videos created by our students for a snapshot of life as a Tampa Prep Terrapin.

Bright, Inquisitive Students

We value our distinctive community and seek talented students who possess an honors attitude and those fundamental human qualities that make our School the vibrant place it is. Is your child ambitious? Creative? Inquisitive? Open-minded? Motivated? We appreciate these traits at Tampa Prep and encourage students who are ready to immerse themselves in all aspects of school life to apply. Need-Based Financial Aid is available to students who qualify through a separate, confidential process.

Admissions: Your Future at Prep

From inquiry to acceptance, our Admission Team members are experts in engaging, educating and guiding families through the entire Admissions process. We create an experience for families and their children that provides them with the knowledge and understanding of our mission, our programs, our standards and our expectations for members of our school community. Our goal is to manage the entire admissions process in a friendly and efficient manner, as well as demonstrate to all prospective families that what they experience the moment they enter our doors will continue until the day their children depart as graduates!
