A strong understanding of basic academic principles is the foundation for all of a student's future endeavors.
The Elite Prep' academic goals are to prepare its students for the general challenges they will face in life after high school; to provide the specific skills and tools they will require to be successful in college and beyond; to turn them into lifelong learners and independent thinkers who appreciate diversity, teamwork and mutual respect; and to nurture in them a strong sense of personal integrity.
Non-academic goals are also an integral part of the school's mission to prepare students for the challenges that await them after high school. We aim to nurture the character traits that are necessary for students to be successful in college and beyond.

Doing homework will help students develop many valuable skills such as proper study habits, time management, responsibility, and perseverance. Teachers will assign homework that will foster individual learning and growth and that is appropriate for the subject area.
Homework is part of all students’ regular evaluations. It the student's responsibility to complete and turn in homework on time. If either the student or his/her parents have questions about homework, immediately contact the teacher who assigned it.
