Why Colleges Love Our Students

Our students are prepared for college academics. At NBPS, our prestigious academic program allows students to demonstrate strengths in specific academic areas, as well as an impressive breadth of knowledge across a wide range of college-level competencies. 

Our students are enriched beyond the classroom. Our students participate in a wide breadth of activities, from athletics to fine arts, making an impact on our campus and in the community, which helps to enrich the academic learning that takes place in the classroom. Our college advisors help students engage in self-discovery and develop life skills, guiding them toward success at the collegiate level.

Success For Each Student

In the same spirit that drives our personalized learning approach, our college advising is customized for each unique student at North Broward Preparatory School. 

Regularly scheduled meetings with the students as well as their parents serve to initiate the right conversation with critically important questions that help determine the colleges that are right for each student.

College Advising hosts informational meetings for parents  throughout the school year, and offers students the opportunity to meet college admission representatives on our campus.
