Dear Parents,

At Inkster Preparatory Academy, your child will be nourished, taught, and loved every day. We provide a specialized focus on early childhood education to ensure your child has a strong foundation to build on as they advance to upper elementary, middle school, high school, and college. We offer a rigorous, student-centered program facilitated by highly effective teachers and supported by progressive technology. Our educational program centers on building success in reading, writing, and mathematics. Our approach is to work collaboratively with parents to ensure each child is at or above grade level in all subjects by the end of second grade.

In addition, we feel each child should embrace the idea that they are somebody and important to our future. We offer a safe, caring, and inclusive environment, and support at every level. By ensuring that students are successful in school in the early years will result in a positive educational experience for the future of each child. In order for students to achieve their goals, we believe in the Five P’s: Proper Preparation Promotes Positive Performance. All students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. Transportation and after school programs are available. Come see our school in action!
