Who is Flintridge Preparatory School?
Flintridge Prep values academics, excellent college counseling resources, service impact opportunities, sports, and arts. It’s a tightly knit community, a network of intimate connections. Here, strong bonds are forged between student and student, student and teacher, study and dreams. It’s a place where students have nearly unlimited opportunity to discover and cultivate their creative and athletic gifts. In this cooperative and caring environment, they nurture critical thinking and intellectual curiosity to prepare each student to embrace lifelong learning.
Flintridge Preparatory School was founded in 1933 as Flintridge School for Boys. In 1979, the school transitioned to coeducation, assuming its present configuration as a coed, non-sectarian day school with a middle school (7th and 8th grades) of 100 students and a high school of 400 students. Today’s campus features state-of-the-art labs, classrooms, and performing arts spaces, with a two-story library, inviting patios, fields, gym and pool, yet keeps that sense of timelessness, intimacy and peaceful greenery that are hallmarks of their early years.
