EDUCATION SPOTLIGHT


Interactive Displays


In May 2021 Learning Prep hosted a fundraising event, the Silver Linings Celebration. A school-wide movement to highlight and create perspective on the many positive changes that last year may have brought upon everybody. Our way of life was changed by the Covid-19 Pandemic, but among those changes, new seeds were planted along the way that germinated into messages of hope, and the importance of family and community. With this in mind the Silver Linings event raised funds for a new technological upgrade at Learning Prep, the purchase of 18 Newline Interactive Displays!

“Let me tell you what I love about working at Learning Prep.”


I get to say this a lot lately. A significant number of teachers and administrators are changing jobs or switching careers in 2021, creating many opportunities - particularly at independent schools. It’s not hard to get people excited about the work we do. LPS has a rich faculty culture of talented, kind professionals genuinely committed to helping kids grow and succeed.
