Mission Statement

A safe, caring and accepting community enables Hilton Head Prep to mold students of strong character. Through students' engagement with exemplary faculty, participation in co-curricular arts and athletic programs, and meaningful involvement with the community, Prep will prepare competent and motivated students to succeed in college and beyond. Hilton Head Prep curriculum will incorporate a solid foundation with critical thinking skills while leveraging students' creativity in preparing them to thrive in an ever-changing world.


As you explore our website, we hope you will discover what makes Hilton Head Prep such a special place. Above all, families choose Hilton Head Prep because we are a close-knit community. Students develop meaningful relationships with one another as well as with their teachers, and our parents are actively involved throughout the school. We come together within a safe, supportive environment to form the “Prep family.”

A challenging program that includes rigorous academics, an extraordinary range of electives, and competitive athletics are just some of the reasons that families choose Hilton Head Prep. Our standards are high, but know that the community will encourage and support students as they reach for their goals.

Our students are actively engaged in the learning process from their first day in junior kindergarten to their final exams senior year. They learn how to think for themselves, and when they graduate, they go on to a wide variety of selective colleges. More importantly, they are thoroughly prepared when they get there. Our alumni consistently tell us the skills they developed at Hilton Head Prep set them up for success in college and beyond.

We look forward to working with you and your family throughout the admissions process. In order to help you make this very important decision, we strongly encourage you to tour our campus this fall, shadow a student, and attend one of our open houses.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about the admissions process. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
