EAST AUSTIN COLLEGE PREP IS PROVIDING AN EDUCATION
East Austin College Prep
East Austin College Prep is the realization of a long-standing dream to have a free, community school located right in the heart of the Govalle/Johnston Terrace neighborhood—a neighborhood that hasn’t had a public middle school for over 25 years, where historically the drop-out rate has been fifty percent.
At East Austin College Prep, we create a positive, nurturing atmosphere of high expectations with a results-driven bottom line: 100% of our students will go to college. Period. EAPrep doesn’t just get students excited to attend college. It prepares them with the academic and social skills necessary to survive in the university environment and beyond. That means a strong foundation in math and science and a comprehensive extracurricular program that includes visual and performing arts, as well as athletics.
And our students won’t just go to college for themselves. Here, community service projects are part of the curriculum. After all, from the beginning the mission of EAPrep has been to grow a better East Austin, one student at a time.
SOUTHWEST KEY PROGRAMS
Southwest Key Programs founded the charter for East Austin College Prep in 2009 in the neighborhood of Govalle-Johnston Terrace because there hasn’t been a public, middle school in this neighborhood in over 25 years and the drop-out rate was fifty percent. The school is part of Southwest Key’s East Austin Children’s Promise initiative to support the success of kids in this neighborhood beyond the classroom with services to meet the needs of the whole family and revitalize the neighborhood of East Austin.
