Who questions much, shall learn much, and retain much.
-Sir Francis Bacon
At Furtah Preparatory School, we aim to do more than promote the learning of facts. Our mission is to inspire each student to love learning. We aim to pique the students' intellectual curiosity in an atmosphere where creative problem-solving skills are valued and every opinion is given respect.
We want our High School students to develop self-confidence and take risks as they learn to think for themselves. Our approach is to guide and instruct the students as they explore the academic subjects and build a strong foundation for their coming years in a college classroom and in the work place.
Courses are taught at the college preparatory and honors levels and are designed to give FPS students exposure to a variety of world views and paradigms. Rather than telling our High School students what to know and what to think, we mentor and guide our students as they learn how to think and how to acquire knowledge.
Online learning opportunities are afforded through GA Virtual at regular and AP levels. This enables our students to excel where necessary, and supplement their areas of individual interest.
