Discover the Prep4Success Difference

Prep4Success is a biblically integrated life and study skills curriculum for students in grades six through nine to prepare for the challenges of high school and beyond.


 As educators, we continually identify and evaluate gaps in our programs so we can provide a stellar experience for our students.

One such gap is the transition from middle school to high school. Students, especially those in rigorous programs, often feel overwhelmed because they don't understand expectations in a high school setting, lack organizational or time management and study skills.

Their stress is observable. Lacking successful key learning strategies, these students struggle to engage in school while planning for their future. Prep4Success can help, with interactive lesson plans, activities and strategies that can easily integrate with homeroom, study hall or Bible class. These materials give students the tools to navigate school and life with confidence.
