Discover the Prep4Success Difference!


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


One such gap is the transition from middle school to high school. We noticed that students who benefit from academic rigor often feel overwhelmed because they do not understand the expectations of a high school classroom.


Their stress can be observable. They typically lack study skills and other, key learning strategies. As a result, they may struggle to engage as they try to plan for their future in college and beyond.


Early intervention is the answer!

With our tools, you can help your students in grades 6 through 9 learn to navigate the road ahead of them with confidence and excitement.


Prep4Success developed an interactive curriculum that addresses common questions to help educators ready their students for the next stage of life.


Prep4Success is a “win-win”!

We target the following needs:

  • Easing the transition into high school by knowing what to expect

  • Providing learning tools to find success in the classroom and in life

  • Demonstrating the importance of solid biblical foundations as students look toward the future

  • Fostering healthy relationships as young people head into these important high school years


The Results?  Confident Students!

Teachers tell us that Prep4Success participants seem more confident. Students tell us that they feel less anxious about the transition. Parents express gratitude that their students feel excited about school and ready to meet the challenges ahead.


Prep4Success can help you prepare your students for the journey! Why wait?

Meet The Founder - Kathy Pierce Howard


In my 30-year career in Education, I have worked with students from kindergarten all the way through their transition into college and beyond. 


This variety of experiences with students has shown me the need for early guidance activities that help students develop important life skills and direct them to their divine design.  This early intervention empowers  students to connect what they are learning during their school years with a greater purpose.

The Prep4Success curriculum is the product of work that I continue to do with my own students.  While I am teaching them life skills, we are also building the relationships I need to be a person of influence in their lives.

I am passionate about student success!  I want to provide you with practical tools that enhance important, developmental relationships with your students.  At the same time, I want to help you impart essential life skills to the children within your influence. This labor of love will support students on their journey as they discover their God-given potential.

Join me in this labor of love.
