In the Tomlin Family Application Lab, students construct roller coaster models to test the laws of physics, code robots to travel through mazes and write and film stop-motion movies.
Down the boardwalk, the Farish Center theatre provides a stage for students as young as 3 to gain confidence in public speaking and presenting and also develop appreciation for the arts as performers and as audience members.
Across the street, Middle School students are testing solar cars, writing poetry, recording podcasts and video conferencing internationally.
Connecting the buildings and the vibrant classrooms are boardwalks and decks that make up Corbett Prep’s biggest classroom of all – its lakeside campus of towering cypress trees. It’s a canvas for murals, a backdrop for kindness campaigns, a living laboratory, a peaceful setting for reading and a safe spot for messy hands-on learning.
Fall Admissions Open Houses
Families looking for a private, independent school are invited to experience the Corbett Prep campus for themselves at two Admissions Open Houses this fall. They will take place at 8:30 a.m. on Wed., Oct. 11 and Tues, Nov. 7.
An International Baccalaureate school for PreK3 through 8th grade, Corbett Prep offers an educational approach that is child-centered, engaging and research based. In addition to a robust academic program, Corbett Prep prioritizes the social-emotional wellbeing of its students with its Four Pillars of Wellbeing social-emotional curriculum that grew out of a partnership with the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence.
The Open Houses will begin with a light breakfast and lively conversation about Corbett Prep’s educational philosophy and practices. Guests will meet our dynamic head of school, hear from experienced school leaders and chat with our admissions team to discover what has made Corbett Prep an inspiring place for kids to learn for more than 50 years. After the presentations, families will tour our 15-acre lakeside campus.
Corbett Preparatory School of IDS is located at 12015 Orange Grove Drive in North Tampa and provides bus transportation from South Tampa, New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Lutz and Westchase. Families interested in learning more about Corbett Prep are welcome to contact the Office of Admissions to schedule a personal tour at any time.
