Principal's Message

Welcome to Crown Preparatory Academy!  I am excited to have you as a part of our family. I know that through the mutual dedication of our parents, students, and staff, this year will be a successful one.

My commitment to each family is that every student who attends Crown Preparatory Academy for all four years will advance to high school on time and prepared for the academic rigor it presents.  It is our goal to ensure that all students will enter high school with the confidence and skills necessary to succeed, become college-ready, and prepared for entrance into a STEM field.
