Tuition

At SR1 College Preparatory & STEM Academy, we believe in providing a rigorous education that is accessible to all students, regardless of their background. The best part? Tuition is completely free! Our high level of rigor is not just about the difficulty of the classes, but rather about preparing students for success in various aspects of life.

 

Rigor, to us, means equipping students with essential skills that are valuable not only in school but also in the business world and in their personal lives. Our curriculum focuses on teaching these skills and providing opportunities for students to apply and develop them.

 

Why is rigor important? It's because colleges and future employers are looking for more than just average performance. They want to see individuals who have pushed themselves, gone beyond the bare minimum, and stepped out of their comfort zones to achieve excellence. Rigor prepares students to tackle challenges head-on, to think critically, and to solve problems that require innovative thinking and a combination of social skills and ethical responsibility.

 

At SR1 CPSA, we welcome students from all backgrounds who are ready to embrace the high level of rigor we offer. We believe that by providing an education that challenges and inspires, we are nurturing the future leaders and problem-solvers of tomorrow.
