Company Description

Wonderful College Prep Academy is committed to providing a world-class education for all students. The Academy's mission is to graduate students who are prepared to earn a college degree and to put them on a promising career path for life. We believe this begins with a nurturing, engaging, community-centered school environment where students develop a strong academic foundation in literacy and math. Ultimately, this will prepare generations of leaders in the Central Valley who are critical thinkers and life-long learners. The Academy's first school opened in 2009 serving students of Delano and surrounding communities in grades 6-12. In seven years, the Academy has become the premier high school in the region, with 75% of its graduates attending 4 year universities. This Fall we will be adding an elementary school to our Delano campus and launching a brand new charter school in Lost Hills. In this inaugural year for Lost Hills we will serve approximately 125 students in grades PreK-2 and rapidly grow to serve students through 12th grade.
