2016-2017 Admissions Season Update

REACH Prep has had a very exciting year in the realm of Admissions with a new Director of Admission & Enrollment, Fiorella Velasquez. Although the application deadline has passed, we are in the final stages of this year's admissions process and we are excited to announce Cohort 24 in the coming months!


Summer Opportunities Workshops

Summer opportunities act as a learning "bridge" from the end of the academic year to the beginning of a new school year. This winter REACH Prep's Director of Middle School Programs, TJ Ramirez, and Director of High School Programs, Aimee Rincon, met with many REACH Prep families to present and discuss options for students to participate in meaningful and dynamic experiences this summer.

Alumni Return for  Networking Event

On Thursday, January 5th, REACH Prep rang in the New Year with a College Student and Alumni networking event at REACH Prep's office in Stamford. Current college students met with REACH Prep alumni who have graduated from college and are pursuing careers in business, education, and finance. Staff members were also available to review resumes and provide one-on-one feedback. The lively event was an opportunity to re-engage with old friends, make professional connections and receive continued support from REACH Prep.


Q&A with REACH Prep's Director of Education

REACH Prep's Director of Education, Lynn Sorensen, addresses frequently asked questions about REACH Prep's 12-year educational continuum, who we are, what we do and the community we serve.
