Help Us in Our MissionA scholar working on a computer

Prodeo Academy is a college preparatory school developing critical thinkers and reflective leaders, strengthening their character, and expanding their opportunities to contribute positively and productively to society.

Support Our Vision

To create an innovative network of schools known nationally for best practices around student achievement and character development, fostering impactful educators, closing the opportunity gap, and building stronger communities

As a free public school, Prodeo Academy receives less funding than a traditional district school receives. Financial support provides the fuel our scholars need to excel. We look forward to partnering with you in this mission!
