The mission of the school is to foster in students athletes a life-long passion for learning, individual growth, and social responsibility in a safe and familial environment.

Daniels Preparatory School seeks to inspire and support students to strive for academic and personal excellence within an ethical framework by placing the highest value on honor, while consistently reinforcing progressive thought. While Daniels Preparatory School continues to build upon the traditions, values and pride of its namesake, it is expanding its horizons to meet and welcome the needs of our ever-evolving society. Above all, the school and its staff are committed to the holistic, healthy development and success of each student.

An approach to learning that has the exponential power to transform education, communities, and the lives of students in our care.

  • Academic Excellence: Provide a competitive and innovative curriculum in preparation for advanced education; enable each student to develop intellectually to their fullest potential; challenge students to cultivate the knowledge and skills needed to become an active member of society.
  • Moral Integrity: Instill honesty and honor; teach mutual respect and responsibility for self, others and community; provide a strong ethical foundation built on values of discipline, tolerance, accountability and confidence.
  • Leadership: Guide students to have vision, be progressive thinkers; strive to be accomplished; to function as empowered adults prepared to make a difference in the world in which they live.
  • Holistic Development: Promote the growth of the minds, bodies and souls of students by providing extra-curricular activities in such areas as athletics, the arts, volunteerism and community services. These activities will focus on developing the uniqueness of each student by fostering their special talents.

Everything Daniels Preparatory School does is centered upon its commitment to foster the development of these four core values in all those who make up our school community.
