Memphis College Prep Elementary School is dedicated to preparing scholars with the academic and ethical foundation needed to thrive in college and life.  Our RISE Approach supports scholars and their families as they move through their educational journey by providing invaluable services that seek to envelope the whole family along the way.  


Memphis College Prep Elementary School is proud to announce that we are a Level 5 District, the highest available rating given to a school district by the Tennessee Department of Education’s release of 2022-23 Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) measures. The TVAAS measures students’ academic growth over time and focuses on growth rather than student proficiency on the state assessment.  We have also been named as a 2023 Reward School.

A Word

From Our Leader

Welcome to Memphis College Prep! Our mission is to ensure that students have the opportunity to graduate from college. I am excited to work with you and your children to make this happen. At MCP, we are committed to providing high-quality learning experiences for your children. As an educator, I always prioritize what is best for our scholars and take pride in it. This principle will guide me in making decisions for our school, especially during these challenging times. We are still receiving applications from new families, and we welcome them to our school. I am looking forward to meeting each of you.
