Eastside College Preparatory School is an independent school serving first-generation college bound students. In a community in which the high school dropout rate is 60%, Eastside students are trailblazing a new tradition of academic success. To date 100% of our graduates have been accepted to a four-year college or university. Eastside students are paving the way for a brighter future for themsel...ves, their families, and their community. As Eastside receives neither the government funding that public and charter schools rely on nor the tuition and family contributions that sustain traditional independent schools, all students are on full scholarship. The scholarship program is thus a key component of our funding model, as it gives donors the opportunity to see the impact of their gift on one student’s life.
