Reasons to Choose Troy Prep

From an award-winning curriculum and caring teachers, to a full K-12 experience, here are some reasons why families choose Troy Prep.

Application Process

Families can apply for a Kindergarten through 12th grade seat for their child. Applications will be automatically placed on our waitlist, and you will be notified once a seat becomes available.

If your child’s academic trajectory does not continue in a traditional fashion (i.e. is not promoted to the next grade at the end of the school year), please notify the school to ensure your child is on the appropriate grade’s waiting list. Waiting lists numbers shift frequently throughout the year! Please be sure to create an account on SchoolMint or contact the school for status updates on your child’s position on the waiting list.

The primary entry point into Troy Prep is Kindergarten and is filled through a random lottery. Students who will be five years old by December 1, 2016 will be eligible to enroll in Kindergarten at Troy Prep for the 2021-2022 school year. The deadline for lottery applications was April 12, and our Kindergarten Lottery was held on April 13, 2021. See below to watch the lottery or read the full transcript here.
