Vanguard students’ superior test scores do not count for everything, but they do serve as one more reminder of the challenging, highest quality college preparatory education that Vanguard College Preparatory School provides. Students are thoroughly prepared to meet the rigorous demands of the universities to which they have gained admission.
What is the secret to Vanguard students’ success?
A high percentage of our faculty has advanced degrees in their field. They are passionate about teaching and eager to share their extensive knowledge of their subject with their pupils.
Small teacher to student ratios allow for a high degree of individual attention from the teacher and meaningful small group engagement.
Vanguard students are not beholden to the ever-changing required state testing, and can instead focus on developing higher level critical thinking skills, which they easily utilize when placed in a test environment.
All Vanguard students enrolled in an AP course must take that course’s corresponding exam at the end of the school year.
