Main Preparatory Academy's Mission
Main Preparatory Academy, serving grades K-5, is dedicated to improving the lives of its students by providing authentic learning experiences in a collaborative, nurturing environment that will build a foundation for students success in school, at future work, and in life.
To achieve the mission, our school will integrate current learning technologies into the classroom, offer authentic learning experiences that are respectful of how children learn best, and offer a schedule and support activities that enable each student to achieve to his or her potential. We want our students to leave the School with the skills and abilities necessary to achieve academic excellence, personal growth, and success as lifelong learners. This mission requires the support of the faculty, staff, families, and community in order to encourage and empower students to be responsible and valued citizens.
"Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be." -Rita Pierson
Parent Notice for Kindergarten and newly enrolled 1st Graders:
(ORC 3313.673) A child’s screening and assessment data cannot be used to determine eligibility to enter kindergarten. The only criterion for entrance into kindergarten is age eligibility. By November 1 of the school year in which a child is enrolled for the first time, the child must be screened for vision, hearing, speech and communication, medical problems and any developmental disorders. If the screening reveals the possibility of potential learning needs, the District must provide further assessment. Schools must note that screenings are not intended to diagnose educational disability or to be used for placement procedures. Screening results are helpful in identifying areas of individual development that require further assessment for educational programming, particularly for students who might benefit from early intervention, prevention, acceleration and/or enrichment programs. A parent may sign a statement that they do not wish to have the child screened.
The Main Preparatory Academy team is joining forces with Chuck E Cheese on Friday April 27 from 3:00 - 9:00 PM to raise money for the students. 15% of all proceeds benefit Main Prep Academy students. There will be games, contests, and more. Some lucky teachers get to get in the Ticket Blaster for a chance to win even more tickets and prizes.

Roberta, one of the mascots from the Akron Rubber Ducks took time out of her busy schedule to visit the students of Main Prep during our Dr. Seuss week celebration. She was kind enough to take pictures with all of the students and staff.
