About Us

Memphis College Preparatory Elementary School opened its doors in August 2010 to an inaugural class of kindergarten students, the college class of 2027. The school has expanded one grade level every year since it opened until we completed our full expansion of Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.

Our mission is to prepare students in kindergarten through fifth grade with the academic and ethical character foundation necessary to excel in school and in life. Our classrooms are named after colleges because our students are preparing each day to complete their journey to college graduation.

Through a rigorous, achievement-focused curriculum and character development, Memphis College Prep students are prepared to enter and succeed in the most demanding college preparatory middle and high schools.

Memphis College Prep is a member of the Excellent Schools Network (ESN), a select group of schools that have demonstrated strong academic results, sound organizational practices, and the genuine ability to close the achievement gap in their communities. Because of their outstanding academic and organizational performance, these schools have been chosen for further investment and support from Building Excellent Schools.
