Academics

Johnson College Prep helps shape scholars' lives and has helped me grow as a person.

— Kela, Class of 2014

At Johnson College Prep, we:

  • Expect ALL scholars to work hard in order to maximize their full potential and comply with the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Provide a range of high-quality, college-preparatory tools and supports for scholars and their families.

Our goal is to prepare our scholars to graduate from the college of their choice. This is done through the implementation of Noble’s proven academic and behavioral model and hard work. Scholars at Johnson College Prep will participate in a rigorous, four-year college preparatory curriculum which prepares them for college success and also seeks to build character and community awareness. All scholars take the equivalent of six years of English and Math, four years of natural sciences, and four years of social sciences. They will also receive intensive instruction in a foreign language, physical education, and a host of elective choices throughout their high school career.
