Merit Preparatory Charter School
909 Broad Street, Newark, NJ 07102
Merit Preparatory Charter School (“Merit Prep”) is a middle and high school located in downtown Newark, directly across from City Hall. A group of leaders founded Merit Prep in 2011 to provide children with an education that will prepare them for the worlds of college, work and life. The founders of Merit Prep were dissatisfied with most traditional schools where students are forced to fit the needs of school and so radically departing from how traditional schools too often fail to prepare students for the demands of our 21st century when they graduate in creating and launching Merit Prep.
Merit Prep’s vision is centered on the individual needs of your child. We design our school’s learning point, learning path and progression, teachers, technology, schedule and community around the needs of each individual student. We call this model a “student-centered model” of school where our school will fit the needs of your student, blending online instruction with in-person teaching to provide a personalized, future-oriented educational experience.
