Academy Prep Community and Corporate Partnerships

Connecting, Creating & Collaborating: Developing Skills to Build Character and Achieve Success

Academy Prep is honored to have an abundance of corporate and community partners enriching students’ lives every day. Its partners commit to serving our children for multiple years and help us fulfill our mission to inspire and empower future community leaders.

Each year, Academy Prep partnerships and individual volunteers provide over 9,000 hours of mentoring, teaching, and guiding, given with much care by these incredible organizations and community members.

Partnerships with All Grades
All students receive specialized instruction and educational outreach to expand their academic and artistic abilities. They also take part in community service opportunities.

5th grade partnerships
The youngest students of Academy Prep widen their experience with instruction centered on positive peer development, health and nutrition, self-awareness, nature conservation, and life skills.

6th grade partnerships
6th graders experience the most diverse partnership courses teaching lessons in team building, etiquette, and health, including physical and nutritional fitness.

7th grade partnerships
Partners provide students the tools to improve their health and wellness, set personal goals, and expand their cultural experiences. Saturday field trips are cultural in nature visiting local art galleries and museums.

8th grade partnerships
8th grade students participate in a series of work-based learning classes taught by law, business, and medical professionals. These classes offer exposure to real life career opportunities.  Saturday field trips are community service based as the students reach out to local organizations in need including, but not limited to, the following: Feeding America, Tampa Bay, Metropolitan Ministries, Hudson Manor, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
