Merit Prep is reinventing school as we know it. A dedicated group of educators founded Merit Prep in 2011 to provide your children with an education that will prepare them for the worlds of college, work and life.

Merit’s hallmark is blending online instruction and in-person teaching to provide a personalized, future-oriented educational experience. Our innovative teaching methods will prepare your children to achieve at the highest academic levels. Each student receives a personal learning plan that teaches them what they need to learn, at the appropriate level they need to learn it, and then moves students forward to the next step they need to master. Merit Prep is not cookie-cutter. We teach each student at an individual level.

Merit Prep works because we have a high-expectation no-excuses culture. Personal responsibility and pride in achievement are how we motivate our students. We value your partnership and faith in us to provide your children with the education they need to live and work in our rapidly changing world. The education they deserve.
