• PREP’s innovative, holistic approach to learning entails thoughtful integration of three core design elements--project based learning (PBL), career technical education (CTE), and social emotional learning (SEL). In PREP schools, students learn by tackling challenging, real-world problems that are meaningful to them. PREP educators routinely collaborate within and across disciplines to co-create learning experiences with students, families, and community and industry partners. Students’ social and emotional development is a central learning objective, bolstered by relationships with advisors, counselors, and onsite social workers.
