We believe a quality education is a golden opportunity that is deserved by all regardless of race, gender, socio-economic status, or zip code. The choice to develop our school as a tuition-free charter school meant that we could create a barrier-free environment for all 6th, 7th, and 8th graders of Oakland to receive an education worthy of their potential. We are 100% fee-free.

Free of cost, all Aurum Preparatory Academy students receive:

  • Rigorous academics taught by certified teachers

  • Transportation to and from school

  • After school programming

  • Competitive Athletics

  • A personal computer

  • Uniforms

We create golden opportunities for our students to learn, grow, and thrive in small classes that help develop trusting and meaningful connections. We meet each unique student where they are, get to know them and inspire them to grow beyond measure. Our students know that they have the power to achieve their dreams and we provide the environment to make it happen.

Along with a growth mindset, our students develop strong character through the application of our Gold Values which are woven throughout our curriculum, Advisory, Focus, and Community Circle. These values represent all that we strive for and expect from our students:


Optimism and Courage

Leadership and Learning

Design Thinking

Aurum Prep’s diverse and dedicated teaching staff sets the bar high for student achievement. They teach the academic skills and discipline needed to achieve in high school, college and life – and our students rise to these expectations. We teach the literacy and mathematics skills needed to excel in a rigorous high school environment.

Consistent communication with families is a cornerstone of our school. Progress reports, conferences, phone calls and an open-door policy mean that you will never be surprised about your child’s achievement and behavior.

Our promise is to the students of Oakland—we see you, we believe in you and we want you to succeed. Join us in our work to help students reach their full potential. Enroll your 6th, 7th, or 8th grade student for free, today.
