Our mission to “develop joyful leaders powered by academics and integrity” directs everything we do for the students at Wesley Prep. For 50 years, our focus has been on the whole child, from strong academics to strong character. Our students benefit from teachers who go beyond the curriculum every day, using a variety of educational strategies that stimulate intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual growth. We believe that our low student-to-teacher ratio and small class sizes provide the opportunity for our teachers to engage every student firsthand. Wesley Prep has a unique environment that allows little children to be little -- exploring, playing and discovering is how they spend their days. Kindergarten and primer allow for a healthy transition into “school work” and they start looking up to the first through six graders who model confidence and kindness daily. And, our sixth graders have a distinct advantage of being leaders of the school in a time that is essential for this stage of growing independence. The result is children who are joyful and confident learners and leaders, at all age levels, from Mother’s Day Out through Sixth Grade. You are invited to tour the school to see if the Wesley Prep experience is right for your child and your family. [mappress mapid="10"]
