Why our school?

Thank you for your interest in Academy Prep Junior High!

We are a free public school for families who believe their children deserve a dynamic, high-quality, fun and challenging school experience.

Academy Prep is comprised of three locations across the Antelope Valley and is built off the success of award winning  engineering, health careers and early college programs within the Antelope Valley Union High School District. We offer small class sizes, full access to Makerspace technology, and 1-1 technology in a safe learning environment. We believe in challenging students to realize their passions through providing them with an engaging, rigorous curriculum where learning takes on a whole new meaning.  

We are a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) based school utilizing Project-Based Learning, hands-on activities and 21st century skills. We believe in exposing students to real world experiences in order to improve problem solving skills.  We are unique and project focused to encourage our students to become the best they can be. We encourage our students to test their critical thinking skills and learn from their successes and failures, because of that our students are better prepared to face our ever changing world. Students who complete our program are well prepared to attend any academy within the AVUHSD.
