What makes the Aurum experience golden? Our caring, committed teachers, our rigorous curriculum, our 1:1 academic support, and our unique enrichment opportunities.

Aurum Preparatory Academy (Aurum Prep), the tuition-free, public charter middle school in East Oakland, offers a college preparatory program with a focus on leadership and character development in a safe, nurturing environment.

Aurum Prep is Supportive and Kind

As a parent of a recent graduate of Aurum, I have to say we had a great experience. . . They made learning interesting and fun! While there were moments that weren't perfect, it was always a safe space . . . They were very supportive and kind.”

Aurum Prep is committed to student success. Our advisory program connects each student with an adult mentor for the entirety of their Aurum three-year experience. 1:1 tutorials, and after-school enrichment opportunities assure that every student has opportunities for academic, personal growth and success.

Aurum Prep is Caring

“Aurum Prep is a caring and loving school. . . .This is a school that does not let you quit. I just want to thank everybody who works at Aurum Prep for pushing me out of my shyness”.

- Aurum Student review,

At Aurum Prep we stress character development and moral leadership which are vital to middle schoolers as they mature. Every week we recognize those students who demonstrate our GOLD values at Community Circle meetings. Through this public acknowledgement our goal is to cheer on and inspire each other.
