Lake Tahoe Preparatory School meets students where they are in their academic journey. We champion lifelong intellectual curiosity, physical fitness, and personal resilience. We achieve 100 percent university acceptance, and our students graduate ready to learn, ready to launch, ready to lead.

At Lake Tahoe Preparatory School, we believe all our students deserve a robust education designed to meet them where they are in their academic journey, and those journeys are very different depending on the student. Lake Tahoe Preparatory School is uniquely positioned to offer all students a meaningful and fulfilling academic experience. We do this by leading a program based on personalized attention.

Our unique program fosters the success of each and every student. Our low student to faculty ratio of 8:1 inspires a superior academic program built on individualized learning and meaningful relationships. Our students benefit from taking part in the best outdoor sports Lake Tahoe offers, including big mountain skiing, and our wellness model prioritizes the physical, emotional, and social health of our students. Our students develop competency and confidence in all aspects of their lives.


A campus visit is an authentic way to meet our students and learn about their experiences, while touring our new spaces including a new residence hall, and sitting in on classes—whether introductory or one of our 15 Advanced Placement offerings. While visiting, you’ll quickly see we offer the best of a big school, with all the benefits of a small one. To schedule a campus visit, please call: 530-583-8665
