Located in the Historic Slavic Village
Cleveland College Preparatory School, serving scholars in grades K-8, is located in the historic Slavic Village neighborhood on the southeast side of Cleveland. Slavic Village, from Fleet Avenue to Broadway, is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. It has a rich history that values close connections to family and church and has a number of unique assets. The area is rich in diversity and this is evident throughout the neighborhood. Its future is bright and its vision is a vibrant, healthy community that promotes active living.
The Slavic Village neighborhood places a strong emphasis on top-notch educational opportunities and has recognized Cleveland College Prep as one such school. Our school has developed a strong relationship with the Slavic Village Development and works hand in hand to assist families in this neighborhood with community events and resident needs.
Campus & Amenities
Cleveland College Preparatory School has a “family” feel. As one of the smallest schools in the network, we boast a close-knit relationship that is formed with all scholars and families. One feature that is unique to our school is our Kindergarten “house.” We have been able to secure the small building that sits directly next to the school itself. With its own house, the Kindergarten teachers have been able to create a space entirely unique to Kindergarten needs. The Special Education department shares this space with the Kindergarten and this has allowed the Special Education teachers to create a private space for small-group and individualized instruction. The main building boasts a spacious gymnasium and fully-functional stage that are both utilized for a number of student activities. These activities include movies, pep rallies, assemblies, PE classes, school dances and choir concerts. We also have a state of the art technology lab that contains 35 computers for student use. These computers are utilized for both formal computer classes and student projects. Three extra-curricular programs that are unique to our school are elementary martial arts and middle school basketball and student council. We have a strong middle school basketball program that boasts an undefeated record.
A Stellar Academic Program
Cleveland College Preparatory School has been in operation for three years and has maintained a stellar academic program that has allowed scholars in grades 3-8 to excel on state standardized testing. Our school has achieved an Effective rating from Ohio’s State Department of Education. This accomplishment can be attributed to our strong academic program and teaching staff. Our school was also recognized by our sponsor as a School of Improvement in year one. The local Slavic Village newspaper has also recognized Cleveland College Preparatory School as a school that families want to attend.
