At Aurum Prep: We’re with You!

At tuition-free middle school Aurum Preparatory Academy in East Oakland we believe in our students’ capacity to achieve great things. We encourage them to take ownership of their education while providing support for their success.

We’re Here to Help

With small class sizes and student to teacher ratios that average 12:1, Aurum Prep provides a high quality, personalized, college preparatory education for 6th – 8th graders at our public charter school.

In addition to in-class support from a dedicated teaching staff, each student at Aurum Prep has a faculty advisor they meet with daily at the beginning and end of the day in advisory groups of 15 peers. Students stay with the same advisor for all 3 years of their middle school experience at Aurum. Close, trusting relationships develop between the students and their advisor who acts as a mentor and champion. Advisors keep an eye on grades and behavior and help students develop strategies and set goals for maximum achievement that may include extra help and 1:1 support.

We’re Here After School, Too

Our doors do not close at the end of the academic day. Teachers offer tutorials Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday afternoons from 3:30pm – 4:30pm. It’s during this 1:1 time that students get extra help with assignments. Because school-to-home communications and a partnership with parents are important, advisors inform families through ParentSquare when after-school tutorials are recommended or required.

Aurum Prep also partners with Envisioneers, a free enrichment program that meets on our campus Monday through Friday from 3:30pm to 6:00pm. Envisioneers help students realize what future possibilities are available while fostering and cultivating academic and social emotional skills through project-based learning. In addition to the after-school program, Envisioneers are on campus during the school day, too, offering extra support to students. It’s easy to participate in the program, just ask us for an application.

An Aurum Prep education is student-centered; focusing on each individual to assure they can reach their goal of success in high school, college and beyond. Tour our campus today to see all we offer. We’re enrolling!
