K-8 Community School Academy
College Bound. Giving Back. Scholars for Life.
We are a tuition-free, non-profit charter school dedicated to providing a high-quality education to all of our students.
Our newly renovated campus is housed in the acclaimed Goodyear Building. With entrances on East Market St and at 20 Kelly Ave, we are conveniently located near the I-76 Freeway – Arlington/Kelley Ave Exit, and only minutes away from downtown Akron. Free yellow bus transportation is provided for families that live 1 to 5 miles from the school.
Akron Preparatory School is an innovative school with a vision of creating a culture of high expectations for behavior and academics through rigorous, research-based curricula and a focus on achievement. It is our goal that our students will attend a college preparatory high school and ultimately gain acceptance to, and graduate from, a four-year college. It is our expectation that 100% of graduates will positively affect change in their local communities while making a contribution to our global society!
