Tampa Prep’s pro-child approach to partnering with parents prepares students to step onto a college campus with complete confidence and the ability to thrive independently.

It is important to note that Tampa Prep is also a place for students to transition into becoming self-advocates in an age-appropriate way. Beginning in ninth grade, our faculty advisors and administrative deans partner with students and encourage them to seek help and solve problems on their own (or with the support of a faculty advisor) before asking parents to get involved.

The Tampa Prep Parent Alliance’s Parent Education Committee (PEC) brings in professional speakers throughout the year to discuss topics that benefit and educate parents with students in all grade levels.

“Our ultimate goal for our children is for them to find out who they are, what they’re good at, and what they want for life after college. We’re just along for the ride.”

Lindsay Bomstein, 8th & 11th-Grade Parent
