About Classical Prep

"Knowledge indeed is desirable, a lovely possession." -Thomas Jefferson




One of the first tuition-free classical schools in Florida, Classical Prep joins the growing number of charter and public classical schools around the country. Such schools are found frequently on lists of the best schools in America based on proficiency in key areas and college readiness.

Classical schools provide a traditional approach to learning. At the elementary level, students are presented with a back-to-basics approach, focusing on mastery of basic skills and a solid foundation of knowledge. At the middle and high school levels, students study a core, liberal arts curriculum, including logic, rhetoric, languages, and philosophy, preparing them to think analytically in order to meet the demands of an ever-changing world.

  • The school will be located in Pasco County, Florida, about 1/2 mile east of the State Road 52 exit of the Suncoast Parkway at 12830 Shady Hills Rd. This property has already received county zoning approval for a charter school.  To see an artistic rendering of our new building, click here.
