Parent Testimonials:

"I would just like to take a moment and just say thank you guys so much!  Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Kirk are the real MVP.  ... I appreciate all the support the Collegiate Prep has given me and I have a greater respect for your teachers." D. Spann

"I wanted to take the time today to say, “ thank you!!!” I personally wanted to let all of you know that you are doing a great job!!!! Before school started parents received phone calls on a regular basis keeping us updated on the plans and the communication continues on a regular basis.We even had calls on how to use the new system, Schoology. I was not sure how virtual leaning was going to go this year but it has been an amazing experience. The teachers have been very organized and so helpful, let’s not forget patient.  I appreciate each of you for taking the time to post the mini lessons as well as making yourself available to teach live for the first few weeks. I’m hearing horror stories from some of my co workers as far at how it’s going with their students at other school districts  and in return I’m able to say that our experience has been pleasant and very smooth. Your hard work does not go unnoticed and we appreciate each of you. May God Bless"
