E Prep’s mission is to seek and provide high-quality, academic, rigorous education for the college-bound scholar. We empower our scholars to think critically, assume social responsibility and serve as advocates for themselves and the community. We achieve these goals within a highly focused, structured and safe environment. We, as a community of educators, families, and scholars, work relentlessly to ensure that every child is prepared to succeed in a competitive world.

E Prep Cliffs is in its 14th year of serving the City of Cleveland and beyond. We have grown from serving 100 students in our founding year to currently educating nearly 330 scholars in grades 5-8. We are proud to be a school that our community has chosen to send their children to year after year.

What Sets Us Apart

In a nutshell, we believe that 100% of our scholars are bound for college and beyond. Our curriculum reinforces high academic expectations with exposure to complex texts and a problem solving approach to math. We weave in character education through our Five Keys: Courage, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility and Self-Discipline. We believe that college preparation is for all scholars — regardless of race, economic status, background or zip code. Our school believes that through high quality instruction, caring teachers and a culture of high expectations, we can support scholars on their path to college.

Exciting Development

This year, E Prep Cliffs was named one of only three middle schools in the entire State of Ohio to be named a Verizon Innovative Learning School. Each middle school scholar *and* teacher receives a new, free iPad with data plan for use throughout the entire school year. From computer programming to digital storytelling, we are so excited about the ways in which learning will expand and accelerate with the launch of this new program.
