Upper School

Balanced Learning

In the Upper School, students receive comprehensive academic instruction and guidance with emphasis on the general skills of writing and logical thinking to lay the groundwork for future studies. Our academic program is outstanding at every level and includes Advanced Placement offerings in 21 subjects and concentrated studies in the fields of Global Studies and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). A variety of artistic and athletic opportunities enhance the curriculum and support student growth.

Led by the Best

Students are led by an outstanding array of educators who are experts in their fields and are committed to helping students achieve their full potential. Through real-world experiences, open discussions, labs and seminars, students form opinions and express ideas, sharpening their critical thinking skills. Classes are taught in a variety of methods, including Harkness discussions in English and Social Science classes. The integration of iPads in a one-to-one environment expands our curricular offerings with technology that supports a variety of learning styles.

College Prep

Students work with our College Counselors to find the perfect fit for their higher education pursuits. Our College Counseling office provides individualized, student-centered guidance for students throughout the process. For details about our College Counseling experience, please visit the College Counseling pages of our website.

Preparation for Life

While our students score in the highest percentiles of standardized tests and earn scholarships to prestigious universities, the real measure of success for Tampa Prep students is how well equipped they are to meet the challenges of college and the career of their choosing. Tampa Prep graduates enter the world with a solid foundation and an understanding about their unique identity is valuable in today’s ever-changing society.
