“When looking for a school for our children to attend, it was essential to find the perfect one that interacted as a “family.”  The atmosphere at Hilton Head Prep exceeded our expectations.  From the moment we first arrived, we knew there was something different about this school.  The staff was caring and inviting and truly had the interests of our family at heart.  The teachers have gone beyond their positions as instructors and have become respected friends.  The love and respect of each other is very apparent at Hilton Head Prep – truly a special find. We are blessed!”

Graceann and Stephen Frederico, parents of Stephen '15 and Barbara '18


“Hilton Head Prep has, without a doubt, changed the way I feel about community service. By teaching invaluable lessons about caring for those in need, and giving us many opportunities to do so, I’ve learned that a small effort on our part can make a huge impact in our community.  Working to improve the lives of others is far more satisfying and rewarding than improving my own.” 

Greg Warren '14


“Hilton Head Prep’s small environment encourages community service because so many of our faculty share a passion for giving back and making a positive impact on the lives of others. The school’s service program has created a positive vibe that has increased awareness of its importance amongst the student body, inspiring them to give back. I’m happy to be a part of a school that encourages us to give back after we have been so blessed.”

Connecting with the kids, communicating with the individual, matching passion with passion...that's prerequisite for learning. That's the heart of a great education. That's why we're at Hilton Head Prep. Hilton Head Prep’s individualized approach to cultivating every student’s strengths, while improving their weaknesses, takes real commitment and detailed planning to deliver on that promise. The classes are small, the interaction between students and instructors is vibrant, and the result is real learning. Real thinking. Whether it’s my daughter’s desire for extra-large canvases in AP Art, one-on-one board time with my son in Algebra, or a school-wide science fair project that surprised us all with a win, all four of our very different children have grown into better students and more engaging human beings.” 

Lynne and David Anderson, parents of Tosh '07, Ian '09, Gracie '13 and Riggs '16


“My wife and I are so pleased we made the right decision in sending our son Tyler to Hilton Head Prep. He is challenged academically and he is using his higher level, critical thinking skills to work collaboratively with others. Tyler is taking ownership of his school work, he is more self-confident and he is becoming a good leader.  He has truly blossomed at Hilton Head Prep.  He even has a love for science now, thanks to his science teacher, Mrs. Taylor. Once you visit, you will not want to leave!”

Karen and Nathan Klein, parents of Tyler '20


“Hilton Head Prep’s commitment to education is evidenced through the experiences of our three children. We are so happy to have found a place where learning takes on many forms. They are growing academically and also participate in a wide variety of co-curricular activities like math club, chess club, mini-phin cheerleaders, spelling bees, basketball and piano.”

Scot and Kendra Parsick, parents of Alex '17, Ashlyn '22 and Aden '25


“It means everything to me that my children are building many of the same wonderful memories that I have from my days at Hilton Head Prep. Nothing brings my heart more joy than watching as my son eagerly anticipates Field Day with the same exuberance I had at his age.”

Robin Cifaldi Haroutunian '88, mom of Wyatt '22 and Sophia '25


“The smaller-sized classrooms are what first attracted us to Hilton Head Prep seven years ago because my children are able to receive extraordinary individualized attention. The faculty knows first-hand their specific learning styles, which are all very different from each other, and they teach accordingly.”

Beth Askeland, mom of Emmett '17, Drew '19, Gunnar '22 and Anders '25


“Bella is thriving in the nurturing environment of Kindergarten. Her traditional classroom instruction is greatly enhanced through the partnership with Coastal Discovery Museum, special classes in art, music and physical education. Bella also has the opportunity to explore her passion for cooking and dance through the after school Prep Plus enrichment classes.”

Emily Johnson, mom of Bella '25
