Welcome to the Upper School
Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about the Upper School at Tampa Prep. The School was founded in 1974 (Upper School only, at that time). We have grown from a division of 250 students in 1988 to 460 today.
Tampa Prep offers outstanding programs in academics, athletics, the arts and other extra-curricular activities. Most Tampa Prep students are involved in more than one school activity beyond the academic program. Students receive comprehensive academic instruction and counseling with emphasis on the general skills of writing and logical thinking to develop the background for the specific disciplines. The school offers Honors classes and 19 Advanced Placement (AP) classes. Additionally, all students are assigned an advisor to guide students and parents through the Tampa Prep experience.
Please visit all parts of the website, visit the school, visit classes and meet with our school community. You will then understand our mission, “A place to think, create, be yourself, aspire to excellence and go beyond.”

Director of the Upper School
