More Than Just a School Day
Our commitment to the success of the students of East Oakland goes beyond the typical 8am-3pm school day. At Aurum Preparatory Academy(aurum Prep), we care for our students from the moment they walk in the door until it’s time to go home. To us, care means rigorous academics, strong relationships with teachers and peers, and opportunities to grow into the best version of themselves, all tuition-free in a safe environment.
Longer School Day, Longer School Year
Our school day begins at 8:00am and extends until 3:45pm, making room for focused, personalized learning and extra time on-task. We’ve also intentionally added a few extra school days to our calendar year. More time at school = more attention and support.
Free After-School Clubs
Our after school clubs extend our day of learning until 6:00 pm everyday. Options like personal finance, art, gaming and cooking are all available, free of charge, to every middle school student. We offer it all as a way to grow your middle schooler’s interests and skills in a safe, social environment.
Homework help and tutoring are also available to students after school. We go beyond the regular school day to make sure our students’ needs, both academic and socially, are met.
We believe that athletics are a key part of developing wellness and healthy life-long habits. Our athletes develop skills like teamwork, confidence, leadership and time management–skills that translate into better learning outcomes during the school day!
Aurum Prep offers co-ed soccer and a girls and boys basketball team for young athletes to grow their athletic development and have fun at the same time. We are part of a district league that competes against other charter and public middle schools in the area. Our students have the benefit of attending a small school that can give them ample playing time while still getting to compete at a high level.
Fun & Community
We pack the fun into our extended day – this is middle school after all! Our students enjoy showing their school spirit and expressing themselves during spirit week with themes like Jersey Day, Pajama Day and Crazy Hair Day. We also hold school wide dances and costume contests. At the end of the year, we celebrate our graduating 8th graders and welcome summer with our annual teachers vs. students water balloon fight. Our amazing community never misses an opportunity to come together and celebrate holidays and the hard work of our students and staff.
Let us take the stress out of the morning hustle and make sure that your child gets to school on time. We offer free transportation to and from school, ensuring students can arrive safely and with ease.
At Aurum Prep, we know that the success of a child is more than just academics. Our focus on character and academics, in an extended day and school year, supports the whole child. The school year is starting soon–reserve your child’s spot today!
