Web Series: Beyond The Classroom
This series focuses on our students' personal life stories, and their life at National Prep. 


“I love National Prep because it is a place where education is the FIRST priority and no matter the circumstance failure isn't an option. For four years, I have had the opportunity to receive a private school education in a public school setting that has enabled me to lead social changes in my community as well as become the well-grounded and mature young adult I am today; I thank NCP for that.”


“Originally, I was a founding Board member of National Prep. I joined this extraordinary staff and assumed the roles and responsibilities of my current position because of a desire to assist in strengthening the social and emotional side of the school's learning process. My desire is to educate the whole child and to put to use the skills acquired in my prior career as teacher and education administrator.”

"I am currently an undergraduate student at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and my major is nursing. National Prep allowed me to build a network with people who can help me be successful. No matter where I am in life, there will be people I met at National Prep that I can call for help or call to say thank you."
