Welcome From the Head of School


Dear Families,

Welcome to Explorations Preparatory School (EPS), a diverse, student-centered, family-oriented, world-class educational institution forming minds of the next generation of critical thinkers, problem-solvers and confident, well-adjusted global citizens.

One of the most significant decisions you’ll make as a parent is choosing a school for your child. Please take a moment to explore EPS, where we deliver academic rigor in a nurturing environment, and value the interests, individuality and talents of every student.

As a STEAM-based/interdisciplinary school, we provide students with valuable real-world experiences to foster critical thinking skills and depth across a wide range of disciplines, preparing them for success in high school and beyond. Starting in Pre-K and continuing through the Upper School, we use a hands-on/interactive approach to learning that builds creativity, conceptual understanding, and communication skills. EPS students are encouraged to innovate, collaborate, and take risks, empowering them to take on new challenges.

Through the cultivation of self-awareness, flexibility and collaboration, EPS helps students to become informed and engaged citizens of the world. Today’s students need to have the ability to work with groups of diverse individuals, who may have perspectives and experiences different than their own. This skill cannot be taught; it must be cultivated through experiences. EPS provides an educational experience that is very international in scope, with a student body that represents 25 different nationalities and a globally minded curriculum. We urge our students to share their viewpoints and develop personal values, while respecting those of others.

There’s never been a more exciting time to be part of Explorations Preparatory School. I invite you to explore the EPS difference for your child.

Sincerely,

 

Andrea Slaughter
Principal, Explorations Preparatory School
