Our Philosophy

PREP-KC is improving the education of Kansas City’s urban students by providing resources to prepare all students for college and careers. Working with six bi-state urban school districts serving 62,000 mostly low-income students, PREP-KC is supporting a more rigorous math curriculum, providing the opportunity for students to earn college credit while in high school, and offering career-readiness experiences to prepare students for future employment opportunities. PREP-KC offers investors the opportunity to focus resources on improving urban public education by supporting data-driven strategies.
