Vision Our vision is to prepare girls for success in a challenging, nurturing, and inclusive performance-based learning environment.

Mission Our mission is to be an inclusive school community empowering girls to live and lead with confidence and purpose. We will propel girls to be trailblazers in STEAM-related fields and carry with them a depth of knowledge, capacity for leadership, strength of character, and awareness of self. Student success means each girl has the academic skill-sets and socialemotional tools to excel. Solar Prep will provide strong STEAM instruction through blended learning, performance-based learning, tech literacy and coding, engineering, robotics, art and drama.
