Read the Press Release

I'm attending the University of Virginia on a full ride, and I couldn't imagine getting here without Coney Island Prep.

Assisting students in finding the right college is the greatest reward.

I give to Coney Island Prep because they give life to the new narrative of what Brooklyn's kids are capable of. 100% college acceptance is just the beginning!

The Commitment to Succeed.

Built in Brooklyn, we’ve grown to four campuses across Coney Island, Bath Beach, and Gravesend.

At Coney Island Prep, I’ve been able to grow my craft as a teacher, and the professional development opportunities are built into the culture and routines of our school.

I appreciated the apprentice teacher program for helping me to hone my skills with coaches both in my classroom and at grad school. I always received positively-framed, encouraging feedback!

I meet the needs of ALL scholars in my classroom, because every child deserves an excellent education.
