Many schools claim to be private college prep schools, so how can you be sure you’re choosing the right one for your child? Lift the lid on what the prep school is actually offering to determine if it is providing the kind of education and support that will help your child succeed. Start by asking about class sizes. Students thrive in small classrooms, which is why Orinda Academy is pleased to have a 9:1 student-to-teacher ratio at our prep school. You should also ask the school about its track record for sending students to college and what schools past students have attended.
