Temecula Preparatory School (TPS) was founded in the year 2000, on the belief that a classical education is best suited for preparing students not only for college and career, but for preparing students to live a life with meaning and purpose.  The core of our instruction is a liberal arts curriculum focused on history, language, and the Great Books, with a significant amount of time also devoted to art, music, and drama.  Through our curriculum, students focus on developing an understanding of the human condition and the world around them.


In addition to a rigorous academic program, TPS has developed a TK-12 character education program based on the Platonic Virtues – Justice, Prudence, Temperance, and Fortitude.  Whether it’s inside the classroom or on the playing field, we hold our students to a high standard of conduct and help students to learn from each situation that they encounter. 


Visitors to our school will often ask, “Why do the teachers and administrators shake hands and greet students when they enter campus and the classroom?” This tradition was established to convey the high level of respect we have for every one of our students and to ensure that they feel welcome and at home on our campus.  We have found that learning best occurs when students feel happy, safe, and loved and so we do our best to demonstrate our commitment to our students’ well-being each and every day. 


If you’re interested in having your child attend TPS, we’d encourage you to learn more about our school by scheduling a visit and taking a tour of our campus.
