The Value of College Prep for 6th, 7th, and 8th Grades

It’s no secret that a college degree comes with many benefits, among them an 84% increase in salary over those with just a high school diploma. College graduates are also more likely to retain their jobs during economic downturns and 47% more likely to have health insurance supplied by their employer.

But what does this have to do with middle school? At Aurum Preparatory Academy (Aurum Prep), we believe preparation for college begins in 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Our small, tuition-free middle school is working to close the opportunity gap by providing the students of East Oakland with the golden opportunity of a free college prep education.

College Prep Middle School

We know that a college prep education can separate our students from the competition in the college entrance race. A college prep education indicates that students have received a rigorous academic program and developed skills that will support them to be successful in college - communication, critical thinking, perseverance and motivation to reach their full potential.

Aurum Prep’s model of high academic standards, character development and trusted relationships sets the stage for future success. We help our students develop study habits and skills that last a lifetime. By offering support for every type of learner through a collaborative push-in model, as well as after-school homework help and tutoring, we ensure no one slips through the cracks.

Support for the Transition to High School & Beyond

We work tirelessly to ensure that all students go to not only the strongest high schools but THE high school that best matches their unique strengths and future goals. Our advisors work to open doors to scholarships and help our students pinpoint the high school and college of their dreams. We believe the right fit is key to continuing our work and nurturing our student’s futures.

We also take our students on visits to college campuses to create opportunities for our students to interact with college students, walk around campus and explore new possibilities. This empowers our middle schoolers to make informed choices and set goals for their education.

We are relentless in the pursuit of excellence and our dedicated staff goes above and beyond to achieve our mission that all students, regardless of previous academic performance, can succeed and go to college.

Don’t miss this golden opportunity–Aurum Prep is enrolling tuition-free for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade for Fall 2023.
