Our History

Initially housed in just four rooms of the Carey Gardens Community Center on Coney Island’s Surf Avenue, Coney Island Prep opened in August 2009 with a class of 90 eager fifth graders. We currently serve more than 1,300 scholars across four campuses, and over the next several years will grow to serve more than 1,500 scholars. What started as a dream has become a guarantee: one hundred percent of CIP’s high school seniors are consistently accepted into college.
