Aiken Preparatory School's Full Profile



Aiken Preparatory School says

Founded in 1916, Aiken Preparatory School has focused on the education of the whole child. Originally through its junior boarding program, and through its current incarnation as an independent day school, APS has touched the lives of many alumni. Through a merger with the Aiken Day School, Aiken Prep added its co-educational program to the curriculum. Located on over 9.5 acres in the heart of historic downtown Aiken, South Carolina, Aiken Preparatory School is a private, independent co-educational day school community reflecting a liberal arts tradition, with an emphasis on rigorous college preparation. Our sequential, school-wide curriculum provides stepping-stones for a lifetime of learning, and it challenges our students to excel. Delivered through a balance of innovative, experiential, and traditional learning, our curriculum allows each student to develop their strengths and find their personal passions. Our program attracts families and students seeking a quality education and the solid values not available in many public schools. Parents find the personal attention, well-designed structure, careful supervision, close monitoring of academic progress, and nurturing environment of our school a perfect match for their children.
