About Aurum


Our Mission

Our Promise

At Aurum Preparatory Academy, all students will be prepared for academic and life success, and all students will receive the education needed to enter and graduate from college.

To ensure our promise we provide the following:

  • Strong teachers building the knowledge and skills of ALL students

  • Intense focus on literacy and mathematics at all grade levels

  • Explicit character development, shaping ethical leaders

  • Safe school community that is structured, rigorous, and joyful

  • Frequent communication with families on behavior and achievement

  • Extended day and year with more time, attention, and support
