Rutgers Preparatory School
Rutgers Prep provides a positive value of self where our students are training to be the leaders of tomorrow. Within a climate of trust, safety, and support, our students embrace intellectual curiosity and creativity in a coeducational college prep school serving over 600 students from age three to grade twelve. The Rutgers Prep community reflects the true and genuine diversity of our modern world. Students are elite, but inclusive. Rutgers Prep is small enough so that every student is recognized and valued, but large enough to offer an extraordinary range of academic challenges.
