In addition to preparing our students to soar in a high school setting, Corbett Prep Middle School teachers support the student in developing the confidence, leadership, and character they will need in the future.
With opportunities to earn high school credits, our rigorous academics are aligned with the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and are flexibly designed to meet individual needs. Variety and choice through specials, electives and clubs, athletic excellence and opportunity for all students, and a dedicated group of teachers who truly connect with each student blend to create a one-of-a-kind middle school experience.
Corbett Prep treats its Middle School students as leaders of the entire school, providing opportunities in on- and off-campus retreats for the students to practice leadership skills, discover their personal strengths, and work together as teams. Students in the Middle School and Intermediate Division also serve as buddies throughout the school year for Field Day, STEAM Fest, and other special activities.
